“One of my goals for 2016 is to share as much as I can about all the wonderful wines that cross my path. Some are on our various lists while others are just wines I think very highly of from personal and professional perspectives. I hope this is a service to the wine drinking public and to the many fantastic winemakers out there.” ∞
