Dutch Henry & Smith Madrone

Wineries & Winefolk

What treats these two have been…

Once again, Gary turns me to another California gem.

The 2000 Dutch Henry Cab Sauv Reserve. Born in 1992, this small family-owned and operated winery, located on the original Silverado Trail in Calistoga, specializes in artisinal Bordeaux reds. It’s a wine like this that leads me to rethink my California Value philosophy (my general view being the ‘lack of’). This wine is why I love wine and arrives two-sided. On one, it is a great wine. On the other, it is California Cab. It makes me smile. I plan to explore Dutch Henry.


The previous ride was with Smith Madrone. Born in 1971, this winery plays with Riesling, Cab Sauv, and Chard. I haven’t tasted anything but Cabs from them, but can place the Stamp-on-the-Head with a clear mind and open eyes…

The soulful and passionate California winetreats are out there, so keep the journey alive.
