Unless you’ve spent some time really exploring Napa, you’re not likely to recognize many of the 500-plus bottles on American Seasons’ wine list. Which suits us just fine. Sommelier Orla Murphy-LaScola does the homework for us: She spends the off-season traveling out West, meeting with small-production winemakers — Dumol, Pax, Araujo, Owen Roe — and developing rare partnerships that allow her to secure wines not often served on the East Coast. Her finds are sublime — as is the fare that accompanies them.
