Fairest Creature is a showcase for the prowess of four master winemakers. Thomas Rivers Brown, Philippe Melka, and Benoit Touquette each vinify a distinctive expression of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from the Napa Valley’s finest vineyards. These bottlings are entitled “Perihelios,” “Polyspline,” and “Sine Fine.” In addition, Michel Rolland creates “Triniceros,” a master blend of the three. This unique project references Chinese mythological figures, which are represented through exquisite scratchboard illustrations.

Testimonial

Working with Vin has been great! They maintained prompt and clear communication at all times. The team at Vin actively encouraged feedback and revisions throughout, making the crafting of our site a symbiotic, collaborative, results-driven creative process.
