The Flying Winemaker

This wine comes from vineyards made up of ancient vines (some over 80 years old), and was made by one of California's most respected winemakers. A few cases of this wine has been on hold for a distributor and was never picked up, and has been sitting in perfect aging conditions for over 3 years. Their loss is your gain - the wine is showing beautifully, and is now one of the best bargains of the year!
