Discovering a Gem: Britt’s Exquisite Napa Cab
Navigating the world of Cabernets last week, I stumbled upon a masterpiece by Britt (Nichols) Richards, an extraordinarily gifted oenologist.
Britt, armed with remarkable experiences from esteemed vineyards like Jordan, Chappellet, and Keller Estate, and tutelage under the likes of Nicolas Morlet and Philippe Melka, has beautifully cultivated a $43 Napa Cab that boasts a magnificent 93 McD rating.
Her latest offering, the 2021 Nichols Napa Cab, unfolds a symphony of flavors – cherry, cassis, mocha, and an intricate mix of barrel spices, which establishes her prominence among the new-generation winemakers.
For wine enthusiasts keen on exploring innovative creators, diving into the offerings at Scale Wine Group would be a delightful start.
