A NEVER-ENDING PASSION FOR PERFECTION
“One of the best wines, if not the best wine, we’ve had.” – Gary Vee
Ralph Hertelendy burst onto the Napa wine scene in 2015 with the release of his 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (95 points, Robert Parker), quickly becoming one of California’s rising star winemakers. Artist, writer, linguist, musician, Ralph blends his talents and passion into the bottle, constantly pursuing perfection. He uses fruit from his four-acre mountainside Rockwell Ridge estate vineyard, just below the Howell Mountain AVA, as well ultra-premium vineyards in Napa Valley and the Russian River Valley. Some well-deserved ratings include:
2016 Cabernet Sauvignon – 99 points and 2015 Signature Mountain Blend, 98 points from Sunset Int’l. Wine Competition; 2016 Legend Cabernet Sauvignon – 98 points, Jeb Dunnuck and 97+ points, Robert Parker).
