Appellation Napa Valley Blends
Cloaked in mystery and unable to divulge secrets, Bridesmaid Wines are serious wines for bona fide wine drinkers. Just like her namesake and inspiration, Bridesmaid Wines are available, alluring, important and very sexy.
Bridesmaid is an Appellation Napa Valley blend framed in the Bordeaux classic grape varieties. This wine is all about the talent of blending and lead blender is Pam Starr one of Napa Valley’s premier winemakers. Before starting Bridesmaid and Crocker & Starr Wines, Pam was the consulting winemaker for Gemstone and the winemaker for Spottswoode.
Because of our extensive relationships in the Napa Valley, Pam is often approached by fellow rock star winemakers that have excess small lots and unique barrels of wine. From these, they selectively pick and choose the best barrels from prominent vineyards to make the Red and White Bridesmaid Wines.
“These are impressively put-together wines, and all the credit first has to go to whoever buys the already made juice and, secondly, whoever assembles these blends.” —ROBERT PARKER
The wine inside these bottles was originally earmarked for far more expensive bottlings. Drawing upon extensive blending experience, Pam creates two Bordeaux-style wines from some of the most revered Napa Valley vineyards whose sources are known only to them. These are winemaker’s wines to please the most discriminating palates, delivering $100+ value for a fraction of the investment, making them ideal for everyday enjoyment by winemakers, connoisseurs and wine collectors.
Every year the composition of the blend changes but the sources remain the same . . . undisclosed.
