Pott Wine 2014 La Carte et le Territoire

The 2014 La Carte et Le Territoire, Aaron Pott's Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend, is quite restrained in this vintage, but there is lovely purity to the flavors. Bright red cherry, mint, tobacco, licorice and wild herbs add an attractive upper register. This is the 2014 La Carte et Le Territoire as Aaron Pott transitions to a greater focus on estate vineyards.

  About Pott Wines

Winemaker Aaron Pott: Enology degree from UC Davis and Master’s degree in Viticulture from the University of Burgundy. Right from the beginning Aaron believed winemaking should also be an art, and was attracted to the larger than life characters in the Napa Valley, like John Kongsgaard and French consulting-winemaker Michel Rolland, who professed to reverse the science-driven trend. Aaron began working for John at Newton Vineyard in 1990 as his assistant winemaker, and along with the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon they also bottled an unfiltered Chardonnay and suddenly wine was sexy again and Aaron was hooked. When Michel came out from France to consult, Aaron would squeeze his 6’3? frame into the back of John’s beat up Ford Ranger and take notes. What a great learning environment! He lapped it up.

In 2004, we purchased a 76 acre (.2 acres planted) property on Mt. Veeder and began to develop our dream of owning our own vineyards. In 2007 we launched Pott Wine and released our first vintage of Incubo, as well as our first collection of single-vineyard wines in 2009. The 2015 vintage marks the next big milestone for us; when our new vineyard was ready to make wines good enough to carry the purple seal of approval! The 2015 Viognier was released in 2016. The 2015 vintage estate reds, Incubo and Space and Time will be released end of Winter 2018.
