James Pratt, Artiste  •  Detail, Oil on Canvas

What wine would you want your fountain to be filled with?  Pomerol perhaps?  That’s the idea that led to this mélange of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the most revered varietals along the Right Bank of Bordeaux.  After assembling this wine like a chef perfecting a sauce, I couldn’t help but smiling when it was realized.  Roasted nuts, dried herbs, flower petals and spices are followed by charred cedar, dark cherries, red peppers, vanilla bean, and the subjective list goes on into as it flows endlessly into eternity.  A medium bodied wine and well balanced, ever evolving arrangement, La Fontaine must be the wine spilling from Bacchus’ fountain,... constantly intriguing. - Bion Rice, Winemaker
