Stout Family Wines Trio



Stout Family Wines, Grannie Rae Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley 2022 Named for Guy’s mother-in-law, who lives down the street from them in Houston, the Sauvignon Blanc showcases Rinaldi’s prowess as a winemaker. The fruit is sourced from a small vineyard behind the French Laundry. Lemon zest, apple cider, and granny smith apples compete with a note of grass on the nose—completely devoid of grapefruit. This Sauvignon Blanc is perfect to sip with fresh tomato salads.
Stout Family Wines, Rose of Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley 2022 This was the first vintage of Rosé, and Guy will openly tell you that he didn’t want to make a rosé. His wife, Kim, did. The winemaking assistant had extra grapes from a side project that Kim offered to buy as a favor. The result was 170 cases of delicious rosé.
Stout Family Wines, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2018 Stout has strong feelings about the proper time to release Cabernet Sauvignon: 24-36 months in oak with 24 months of bottle aging. He got this formula from Justin Myer, one of the founders of Silver Oak. Cherry cola, ripe black cherries, and cocoa powder without being ‘dusty,’ though the majority of the fruit is from a Rutherford vineyard.
