Britt Nichols is one of the best winemakers in Napa and Sonoma that nobody knows. She's worked at such powerhouse firms as Keller Estate, Jordan and Melka and was the longtime enologist at Peter Michael, responsible for the legendary Les Pavots wines. She struck out on her own in 2012, and just as she was about to embark on what likely would've been an endless circuit of multi-state distributor meetings, she learned her first child was on the way! To our good fortune, her first decision was to make a "forever" deal to sell all the Nichols wines to one New York distributor (at a huge discount to the original $75/bottle prices), and focus all her time on family and making the best wine possible. One taste of this classic Napa Cab- sourced from a Rolodex of "A"-list growers- is all the convincing you'll need that she made the right decision.
