Despite the charms of Washington and Oregon, the best wines to collect if you’re looking to make a profit still come from Napa Valley, says Bruce Schoenfeld in Club Oenologique. “It isn’t often that you find such a disconnect between the major critics and the marketplace. I suspect it’s a built-in bias, held by America’s ‘look at me’ drinkers, for Napa Valley– and against everywhere else in the country. Never mind that Napa is becoming increasingly untenable for growing the Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay that made its name, or that the eastern half of Washington State has evolved into one of the most compelling viticultural regions of the new world.”
