The Experience

While we produce a wide variety of wines at Judge Palmer Wine Co. grown in both Napa and Sonoma, our flagship wines are definitely the Cabernet Sauvignons from Beckstoffer To Kalon and Beckstoffer Georges III – vineyards which Wine Spectator recently called “the most historic and significant vineyards in Napa Valley.”

Usually our guests have the opportunity to sample one vintage from one of these famed vineyards as the capstone to their visit. With the Beckstoffer Cabernet Evolution experience, you will have the opportunity to not only taste a vertical of 3 vintages of this wine from our library, but also barrel taste the most recent vintage as it is developing in the cellar. Your host for this unique experience will be one of the owner-winemakers, Palmer Emmitt or Michael Scorsone, who will share with you the story of their journey into wine and pour a cross-section of other bottles from the portfolio in addition to the Beckstoffer Cabernets. You will relax on our beautiful stone patio overlooking the vines, and enjoy a selection of local cheese with the wines.

Later we will take an informative tour through the barrel room or out into the vineyard to gain a more detailed understanding of our artisan production methods. We hope you will join us soon - you can be sure we'll be just as excited to taste these wines side-by-side as you are!

Included: 

  • Current release tasting with one of the owner-winemakers – Michael Scorsone or Palmer Emmitt
  • Library vertical tasting of 3 vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon from the famed Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard in Napa Valley
  • Barrel tasting of the most recent vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon from Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard
  • A selection of local cheeses to enjoy with your tasting
  • Duration: 2 hours

About The Winery

Judge Palmer produces wines from Bordeaux varieties with a focus on single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, showing off the multitude of unique terroirs in Napa Valley and Sonoma County. 

The duty of a Judge is to maintain order and ensure that justice is done while remaining fair and impartial. We feel that the role of the winemaker should be the same - an expert yet unbiased observer who allows the vineyard, varietal and vintage to testify for themselves in the finished wine.
