    There are two types of winemakers Varis. Those who have too much home made wine. And those who someday will! :)

    Probably a good choice to expand your sights to the North. Seems like Mother nature is intent on burning Napa Valley to the ground one way or another.

    Some new arrivals today from earlier this year. Odette Cab is one of my favorite all time wines, this winery continues to churn out this impressive wine year after year. It’s so flavorful and full with silky smooth tannins, it’s mouthwatering just looking at it. Haven’t been fortunate enough to try the Reserve yet.....

    What did the Odette Cab set you back per bottle? Had it once and it was superb.

    I think it retails for 130/140, I get it from a wholesaler for just over 100.

    Hmmmmm, that really is how that reads.....well, you get the picture. I can tell you, I’m not making any money at this game, all expenditures, no revenues, and other than the occasional hangover, really nothing to show for it!

    Are those your bottles? How did you get gold foil for the labels??? I ask because labeling and label design are some of my favorite activities for making my wines, and my tribute Cab Sav in memorium for my dad really could benefit!
