So good, high acid on the front, chocolate on the back. How can one have both?

Blackberry jam. Blueberries. Fluid in the mouth and approachable.

Nonvintage, so I don't know how old this is. Horribly flawed with VA.

It was definitely interesting as all of Abe's stuff is, but it had tons of VA which was a little off-putting. However, the cork may have been compromised. Hard to tell with their wines.

Flippin' delicious. Have no clue what the varietals are in this blend. Don't see a vintage on front or back label. High in alcohol but who cares! Thanks Sauvage for pouring BTG! #caliwinesrock
