Description: This second vintage of Bob Pepi’s first Eponymous wine from outside Napa Valley immediately pleases with complex aromas hinting of cassis, spicy oak notes, slight camphor and raspberries. Held to the light, one sees a rich, purple-scarlet color that hints at the broad palette these grapes afford the winemaker. It has excellent body and structure, with the fruit flavors coming through, especially at this young stage of the wines development. There area also added nuances of chocolate and rhubarb. This wine’s elegance and refinement are reminiscent of the finest Bordeaux blends – from the lush entry through the mid-palate and on to a long, pleasing finish.

Winemaker’s Notes:The grapes come from just over the peak of Mount Veeder, on the Sonoma side of the Mayacamus Range that separates the Napa Valley from Sonoma Valley. This is a spectacular sloping site with multiple exposures and well-drained, low fertility soil. After picking, hand-harvested fruit was fermented with utmost care and the resulting wine was aged 20 months in 60% new oak – 90% French and 10% American – with frequent racking the first year. The result is a wine that exhibits the traits expected in a Bordeaux Blend – elegance and refinement – without giving up any body or structure Interesting Facts: Eponymous MacAllister is a joint winemaking venture between Bob Pepi and Jeff Booth – their first Bordeaux Blend since the 1991 Conn Creek Anthology, (where the two winemakers first met). That wine was the highest rated wine in the 25 year history of Stimson Lane at that time.Gold Medal- SF Wine Comp.


About Estate:
Robert L. Pepi knows what it's like not to own his own name. When his family sold the renowned Robert Pepi Winery in 1994, the label lived on. But, Bob Pepi himself cannot put it on a wine label.

Therefore, the first wine that Bob has made for himself since the sale of the family name has a label that reflects both his belief that "wine should be fun" and explains his predicament. Eponymous is "one for whom or which something is or is believed to be named". Bob Pepi has given it his own playful definition, "a play on words by one who is unable to use his family name on his own bottle of wine".

Vineyards are in both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys:

Napa Valley: Eastern Hills north of the city, 300 feet above the Silverado Trail.

Sonoma Valley: Just over the peak of Mount Veeder on the Sonoma side of the Mayacamus Range that separates Napa Valley from Sonoma Valley.

Food Pairing:
A natural food wine, this beautiful blend is as great alongside herbed pastas or roast chicken as it is with burgers and steaks fresh off the grill.
