Apricot and red pear on the nose, bruised apple and rose hip on the nose make way for stunning depth from sur lie aging. A silky finish is accentuated by a light tannin element with touches of fennel and spearmint.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
When winemaker Jeremy Carter co-founded Tarpon Cellars in 2017, he wanted to make a little noise in the normally harmonious world of Napa wines. Not content to follow the lead of most wineries in the region and focus solely on big-shouldered Cabernets and silky smooth Chardonnays, he decided to step off to the side of the stage and play his own tune. He was like the guy who showed up to the orchestra with an electric guitar. Prior to founding Tarpon, he spent around decade working his way up the ranks with positions at luminaries like Luna, Chappellet, and Duckhorn. The work was fulfilling, and he quickly gained notice. But he felt the pull to go out on his own and create wines for an audience he felt was underserved. Carter's vision culminated in 2020 when Tarpon Cellars rolled out their Cambaro wine label. Cambaro, a Spanish word for crab, was chosen to represent the laid-back vibe that Carter envisioned for the wine. Each bottle has a custom Spotify playlist linked on the back label, giving drinkers a soundtrack to enjoy while they sip. Plus, the custom-painted images from Atlanta-based artist Charlie Hanavich adorning each bottle are eye candy for a generation that came of age with social media.
