Kinsella Estate Dinner 2019
KINSELLA ESTATE WINE DINNER
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12TH
I've been trying to put together a winemaker dinner with Thomas Rivers Brown for the last 10 years. As far as California Cabernet winemakers go, he is pretty much at the top of heap. His Cab's received more 100 point scores than I can count and routinely fetch more than $1000 a bottle. Thomas' list of wines reads like a top 10 list: Schrader, Maybach Cellars, Turley Estate, Outpost, etc. One of my favorite projects he works on is Kinsella in the Dry Creek Valley. During my last visit to the winery, I asked Kinsella's general manager Richard Smock if he would be willing to present his wines at Restaurant Nicholas next time he's on the East Coast. I think he's been dodging me for the last few years because Kinsella barely has enough wine to sell to their own customers... but my persistence finally paid off.
Richard will be joining me on June 12th to present (3) Kinsella Estate Cabernet Sauvignon's along with their Red Zinfandel. Don't miss it.
