THE WINERY THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD

PAIRED WITH THE SIZZLE HEARD AROUND IT.

It’s an underdog story for the ages—and one Ruth would’ve loved. In 1976, Napa Valley’s Chateau Montelena had the wine world buzzing when its ’73 Chardonnay defeated esteemed French competitors in the prestigious blind wine tasting known as the Judgment of Paris, forever changing the way the world viewed American wines.

Come toast exclusive wines—like the 2006 Estate Cabernet and Petite Sirah—from the vineyard that put California at the forefront of the wine world. Savor the sizzle that made Ruth’s Chris a household name. And relish an evening that’s as rare as it is perfectly paired.

Chateau Montelena Sirah

2010 Napa Valley Petite Sirah

The 2010 vintage can be summarized in one word: patience. After a cool, wet spring, the growing season meandered through a mild summer. However, the late summer warmth was just enough to kick-start harvest. The result: a cool vintage wine, with aromas of bright blueberry and clove interspersed with a touch of cassis and cocoa.

Chateau Montelena Cabernet

2006 MONTELENA ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Duality in nature is everywhere, but it’s not often that two distinctive phenomena occur simultaneously. Yet our 2006 harvest saw both warm and cool vintage characteristics. Nowhere was that duality more pronounced than on the Montelena Estate, bringing this wine notes of blackberry tart, clove, cinnamon, cocoa and dried black currants.
