Staff Pick Notes

There is a sidewalk near my house that offers a clear view of the next three blocks. It is easy to become fixated and look longingly down it strewn with leaves. How long is it alright to linger?

You can see the path this wine will take through the years and it is hard to look away. How long will you linger?
