This certified organic 43-acre estate in Napa Valley’s renowned St. Helena appellation has produced grapes since the mid-1880s. The property was purchased in the 1980s by French entrepreneur and philanthropist Jean Leducq, who aimed to create an estate comparable to the greatest winemaking châteaux of Bordeaux. The 2007 vintage is a dark, brooding, powerful red that shows superb balance. ($95)
