Totally true. For A LOT of the wines, this is the case. For others (the earlier stuff) it seemed like it was shiners or identical.larry schaffer wrote: ↑July 23rd, 2020, 1:39 pmFor all of you who are hoping that these wines are 'identical' to a specific producer - it sounds like CH is purchasing wine and bottling it himself, not relabeling something that's already out there. And therefore it could be 'overages' of a specific blend - OR it could be extra wine that didn't make the cut for a specific producer's product line. So if a SCM pinot does not have the same acid or structure one expects from a specific producer, it does not mean it is not from one of said producers at all. Something to think about . . .
It's a complicated model!
