Brilliant Mistake Wines produces small lot ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon from the Stags Leap and Rutherford Districts in Napa, CA. We spend copious amounts of time researching the various regions of Napa Valley. Our team seeks out specific vineyards that “speak to us” and produce fruit that represents and reflects the individual characteristics and terrior of the vineyard the grapes are grown in. In our quest to provide the highest quality Bordeaux style wines that we possibly can, it is our sincere hope that these wines represent some of the very best Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley has to offer for you.
The standard we set for our wines can be described in one word: elegance.
As winemakers, we try to understand the temperament and personality of the vineyards we choose for our wines, searching for the best qualities in the fruit. We are fortunate to be working with a very talented winemaker, consulting on every aspect of the winemaking process. With our love of culinary experiences, the gathering of friends, and enjoying a beautiful bottle of wine, it’s goes without saying that we would want our wines to be memorable. So when it comes to the winemaking, we strive for structure, balance, and approach-ability, which allows the fruit to shine through.
“Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living”.
