I've only opened the regular 2017 Maresh (called Mirabai) from Kelley Fox so far. It is an amazing wine. Light color but loads of aromatic and palate complexity. Looking forward to popping the three vineyard designates later.
This wine (Mirabi) for 35 dollars is a fantastic value. So darn good

Can't one go to small claims court sue them and ask to pay the difference between what they charged and you having to source the wines for a higher price. Cost is minimal They will not want to hassle with this
