My 1st time ordering the single vineyard wines, and my minimum is 6 bottles.

Anyone interested in splitting my 6 bottle minimum?

The wife does have allergies. She takes medicine daily.

Don’t think it’s tannins, she get headaches with red and white wines but not every time.

The Wand Wine Filter

The wife will often get headaches from wine. We believe it’s coming from sulfites.

The wand wine filter claims to remove sulfites, and histamines.

Looking at the case numbers from 2016 : M. Etain = 850 & Scarecrow = 2,000, and in the 2017 M. Etain notes they call 2017 as very similar to 2011.

In 2011 they had 750 cases of Scarecrow, and 1,300 cases of M. Etain so we should expect ~ 800 cases of Scarecrow because M. Etain is at 2,050

That blend makes more sense.
