We also recommend Karen MacNeil's The Wine Bible, in which Kristof's wines have received 8 "Best Wine" citations.
"Building a wine brand is an acute lesson in patience. For those who are privileged to truly start from scratch in the Napa Valley, it's 3-5 years waiting for vines to mature after planting, for red wines, another several years aging and then perhaps up to a year in bottle. But there are a very select few in the Napa Valley who age their wines even longer. KNA is one of these."
"Collectors take note – with both a fine vineyard and winemaker pedigree, such limited production, and a rare current release featuring wines with extended aging – these wines won’t last long." --David Thompson, The Napa Wine Project
"Kristof Nils Anderson, the former Lewis winemaker and founding winemaker at Gargiulo Vineyards in Oakville and Scribe in Sonoma, is known for making tannins "dance" on the palate in his terroir distinctive wines. His wines have extended aging potential and the proven ability to evolve magically in the cellar. Pella represents the epitome of his remarkable talent and artistry in crafting age-worth wines of the highest caliber.
The Star Vineyard in Rutherford is farmed by one of Napa Valley's greatest viticulturists, David Abreu, producing sultry Cabernet Sauvignon fruit of admirable quality. This vineyard, ideally situated on a sweet spot of the Rutherford Bench, is the next vineyard to the South of BV's #10 Vineyard and adjacent to BV#1, which goes into BV's flagship Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Optimally cellared, the 2007 vintage is at a pinnacle of drinkability with its decade-plus of bottle-age that worked some real magic in that time."
