In the early 1950s record companies introduced the two-sided 45. The “A” side played the song the record companies hoped would become a hit. But the “B” side was often the real find, frequently revealing an undiscovered gem.
Inspired by these unheralded classics, B Side wines bring this alternative sensibility to the decidedly A-list world of Napa Valley wine. Hailing from Napa’s “flip” side, B Side reds are crafted with grapes sourced from the slightly-off-the-beaten-track vineyards along the valley’s eastern hillsides. They’re authentic originals: a little experimental and unexpected, crafted and perfected behind-the-scenes for those with a penchant for discovery.
The initial vintages of B Side Cabernet earned rave reviews, including 90-plus scores from leading wine publications. B Side’s new Bordeaux-style red-—a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petite Sirah—-is expected to earn similar praise.
