Re: 2017 Greer

Great notes. I love these wines and this is one list I would never consider not ordering from. Usually get 6 bottles. May do just 3 this year as I’m trying to scale back. Tasted with Rob in the barn years back. Memorable experience. If critic tasted these wines they’d be quite hard to get.

Re: MacDonald, Realm and Greer offerings

Same boat.
Expensive day trying to pare down too.
Only got half my Realm order 3 Bard and 1 Falstaff
6 MacDonald. I usually get 6 Greer but may cut it back to 3 given the year. I’m sure it’s still great.
Anyone taste the 2017 Greer?
Already bit on SQN, Alban and Cayuse.
