Yesterday a casual media event was held at Hindsight Wines in Calistoga, California. It was held at the house of Seth Gersch and Dr. Alisa Gean, owners. Also in attendance was their new winemaker Michael Weis, they provided some delicious appetizers and poured all their new releases for the various wine writers and media personnel. The three new releases that were especially outstanding were their 2020 Sauvignon Blanc, the 2019 Chardonnay and the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain. You can read about these wines below at (the previously released 2017 Howell Mountain is in the story):
Hindsight Wines has a stated goal of offering solid representative varietals of Napa Valley at a fair and competitive rate. Dollar for dollar, pound for pound they have succeeded in accomplishing this goal. While not having a tasting room or an active wine club, they do offer some amazing sales (40% to 50%) on occasion and it is worth joining their mailing list and acting quickly when they are announced.
Their 20/20 Hindsight Cabernet Sauvignon is a great everyday wine to be enjoyed with a steak or simply by itself as it is smooth and provides just enough panache without breaking the bank! Read a previous story on the 20/20 at:
I will state while all their wines, from their refreshing whites to their absolutely delicious red wines, my personal favorite is from the Bella Vetta Vineyard on Howell Mountain. While not an everyday wine, it truly is a remarkable wine. It has enough structure and tannins to last 7-10 years and is perfect with a juicy steak as the pictures in the below stories can attest.
No matter which wine you chose from Hindsight wines, your Hindsight will ask you why didn’t I discover these wines sooner. As they say Hindsight is always 20/20!
