Exclusive and Limited Napa Wines
Experience Meticulously Crafted Wines
Each bottle is a meditation on wine as art – utilizing the best grapes from Napa Valley’s most famed vineyards, and dedicated to excellence in winemaking, each vintage is handcrafted and made in limited quantities to ensure that quality is never compromised. Metaphora observes the time-honored practices that include carefully monitored growing, an impeccably timed harvest, handpicked and hand-sorted grapes placed in small bins, cold-soaked for maximum extraction of the skins, whole cluster fermentation, and meticulously managed aging in the highest quality French oak barrels.
The first vintage of Metaphora Cabernet Sauvignon in 2005 was a collaboration with acclaimed winemakers Chuck and Joseph Wagner of renowned Caymus Vineyards, and continues today in the hands of present winemaker, Mark Herold, who places an emphasis on the dynamic dialogue between fine food and wine. Chef Thomas Keller selected the first vintage of Metaphora Rosé of Pinot Noir to complement his cuisine at the prestigious Bocuse D’Or in 2010, and it has the distinction of being the only domestic rosé on the wine list at the French Laundry.
