Saint Helena, CA (PRWEB)

Gayot, the highly-respected, 44 year old “Guide to the Good Life,” has given two of its top awards to Scott Harvey Jana Cathedral: Top Steak Wine and Best Cabernet Sauvignon. In their September 2013 feature, “Best Wines for Pairing with a Steak”, the Cabernet Sauvignon received the highest score of all 10 wines highlighted by Gayot.

2005 Jana Cathedral -
Selected as Top Steak Wine

“The 2005 Cathedral definitely wows upon entry,” the review begins. “Its intense, concentrated fruit flavors boast plenty of complexity and show an excellent balance of acidity and tannin. Match Cathedral with perfectly marbled wagyu beef or dry-aged Angus steaks.”

Gayot also chose the Cabernet Sauvignon from Scott Harvey Wines for “The Best Cabernet Sauvignons in the World.” Here, they reviewed 76 reviewed Cabernets from all corners of the world. Only 5 of the 76 selected received a higher score. Jana 2005 Cathedral finds itself in very good company, including: Joseph Phelps Vineyards 2006 Insignia, Staglin Family Vineyard 2008, Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Duckhorn Vineyards 2004 Estate Grown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chateau Montelena 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon.

“Receiving these honors is wonderful, of course,” said winemaker Scott Harvey, “but most of all, Jana Cathedral is a fun wine to craft. I believe in crafting Napa Valley Cabernets the way they used to be crafted back in the 1950s and 60s, and that’s at below 14% alcohol with a good lower pH that will make the wine last for years and years. That will also make the wine delicate enough that it will go well with food without overpowering it.”

by Susan on June 14, 2013

Latest awards for Scott Harvey Wines confirm that lower alcohol wine appeals to wine enthusiasts and judges. According to Napa Valley winemaker, Scott Harvey, balance is the key to winemaking.

Saint Helena, CA (PRWEB)

The winemaker is not alone in his views about the superiority of lower alcohol wines. According to Richard Halstead, CEO of global market research Wine Intelligence, “Alcoholic strength of wine is an issue that consumers take seriously across the world." According to Drinks International, "there has been widespread criticism of 15.5% alcohol blockbusters and requests for winemakers to aim lower."

Sutter Creek, CA: Scott Harvey Wines, chosen by Trip Advisor as the #1 attraction in Sutter Creek, is celebrating the Grand Opening of their expanded Tasting Room on June 1st, as the culmination of a mission to create a new wine tasting destination in Amador County. How did Winemaker Scott Harvey help transform an historical Gold Rush town known as the “Jewel of the Mother Lode” to a charming wine center?

Scott and Jana getting ready for the Grand ReOpening of our Sutter Creek Tasting Room June 1st 2013

6 years ago, Scott and his wife Jana envisioned a tasting venue where people could both dine and lodge within walking distance of the tasting room.Sutter Creek, the most picturesque town in Gold Country, would be the ideal showcase for Amador County wine and provide just the place for responsible wine tasting—where people enjoy a flight of wine and stroll to dinner and back to the hotel.Scott and Jana took the leap in early 2007, joining just one other tasting room in town—Sutter Creek Wine Tasting.

Later in the year, Pat Crosby, former City Councilman of Sutter Creek, (the town is a registered California Landmark,)approached winemaker Scott Harvey with a proposition. “I would really like this town to become a wine destination. Can you help in developing Sutter Creek into a wine lover’s destination?”Scott approached the city with a tasting room prospectus at Pat’s behest.

Scott had already built a reputation making Amador Wines for Santino Winery, which he later developed into Renwood, and had a strong affiliation with Amador County wines. “What better place for people to appreciate the Barbera, Zinfandel, and Syrah that make the mountain region of Amador County so unique than right near the vineyards of the Shenandoah Valley.”
