Thomas Rivers Brown.
the Crows is an artisanal winemaking venture that involves Thomas Rivers Brown,
one of Napa Valleyâ€™s star winemakers, and a prime five-acre vineyard in the
hills above St. Helena. Three Twins Vineyard is owned by Rich Talmadge and
managed by Josh Clark, who are producing Stone the Crows Cabernet Sauvignon
with Thomas Rivers Brown. Brown has been making wine in Napa Valley for several
decades and has consulted at Schrader and Maybach, among others. He was in 2010
named Food & Wine Magazineâ€™s Winemaker of the Year. The vineyard was
planted in 2005 and the 2010 vintage was the first commercial release. The name
of the wine comes from an Australian expression of incredulity or surprise. The
partners expect to make no more than 600 cases a year.
