DFW Speak

We love wines that intrigue.
When we sat down with the importer to taste this wine-my remark, we wow…and I said to him referencing the half bottle we were tasting from; I could just drink the rest of that right now. Totally natural, clean and elegantly integrated. One of my wines of the year. We bought the last 17 bottles in California.
