AG is late to the game. The 2017 crushed too.

Re: 2020 Wine Resolutions

Continue to drink a glass or two with dinner most nights. Yeah Yeah Matthew :)
Stop buying great deal daily drinkers (like I don't have enough already)

Never hesitate to open a great bottle even if it's a weeknight (life is too short!)

Anderson Valley, correct? Very nice wine and great price. I think it's all Bearwallow fruit.

Not the Santa Cruz at that price...
