Re: de Negoce offer

Cam says the producer’s “Cabernet Franc sells for about $50/bottle out of the tasting room” not that they sell this exact blend for $50. In the past, Cam has been pretty keen to point out when it’s the same blend. It may be blended by the producer for Cam, but not something that they sell.
