    Winemaker Notes

    Pale yellow in color with greenish reflections. The nose is reminiscent of acacia flowers and the delicate scent of almonds. Clean and refreshing on the palate with hints of linden and honey. Recommended with risotto dishes and grilled white meats.

    The first vintage was bottled in 1992, and 960,000 bottles are produced annually.

    Critical Acclaim

    Kris
    Kris, , Italy
    Kris
    Kris wines are a joint effort of winemaker Franz Haas and Winebow. Winebow founder and CEO Leonardo LoCascio first met Franz Haas on a visit to Italy in the late 1990s. Immediately impressed with Haas' mastery of winemaking analytics and his painstaking attention to detail in all aspects of vineyard management and winemaking, Winebow began importing Haas wines into the U.S.

    Recognizing Haas' winemaking talent and sensing a tremendous market opportunity for well-crafted, reasonably priced "lifestyle wines" in the U.S. market, LoCascio approached Haas about developing top-notch Pinot Grigio and Merlot to be sold in the U.S. under a new label, Kris. Haas agreed, and in his characteristically meticulous fashion, set about laying the groundwork for this new enterprise.

    In developing Kris, Haas examined pre-existing vineyards, and carefully explored new sites with soils and locations comparable to his own, in order to plant new vines. The resulting wines, Kris Pinot Grigio and Heart Merlot, have exceeded expectation in both quality and value.

    Napa Valley

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    View all wine

    The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
