Tony Soter is arguably one of the truly iconic figures in American winemaking. He founded Etude Wines in 1982 and shortly after began working as a consulting winemaker with such luminaries as Araujo, Viader, and Della Valle. In 2002 Tony and his wife Michelle, both natives of Oregon, returned there with their family and established Soter Vineyards Winery. Little Creek Red, however, is a Napa wine, Little Creek Vineyard being a three-acre parcel of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon that surrounds the former Soter home there. This is a rich and expansive wine, built to last: it is driven by the Cabernet Franc, which contributes an unmistakeable note of violets and a cigar-box aroma, while the Malbec lends exotic notes of black fruits and flowers and the Cabernet Sauvignon adds a hint of cassis.
