Wornick’s Seven Stones Named Rising Star

Ron and Anita Wornick, of St. Helena and San Francisco, traveled to New York today for the California Wine Experience where their inaugural release from Seven Stones Winery, a 2005 cabernet sauvignon, is being featured by Wine Spectator editors James Laube and Harvey Steiman, on a program entitled, “Rising Stars.”  

Seven Stones was chosen among just five California wineries deemed by Laube and Steiman to be among the hottest properties on the West Coast.  Seven Stones 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded 94 points by James Laube.  The entire 2005 production was sold to the mailing list in just under five hours on release day late this summer.

Rising Stars Tasting. A tasting from some of the hottest new wineries on the West Coast—five from California, three from Washington and two from Oregon. Onstage, James Laube, senior editor, Wine Spectator and Harvey Steiman, editor at large, Wine Spectator, lead the tasting with the winemakers and/or owners. The wines are:

    * Linne Calodo Problem Child Paso Robles 2006 (95 points)
