Re: William and Mary 2017 Save the Date

You can Feel very good about buying these. Tasted last week and the Prop may actually be slightly better than last years, which I loved. Cab is right there, just slightly more tannic which I’d expect to ease up in a year or two. I’m debating whether to do 3 or each or 6 of each. Great wines at a mor...

I was HALO jumping with Alex last week and we had a chance to taste through his whole lineup starting with his 2008 and ending with each enjoying a cluster of 2019 grapes. The 2018 was breathtaking. His 2017 sublime and the 2016 incredible.
