Wow. Truly as good as mountain zin gets. I need to load up on the newest releases, especially with the current discount that Alfert pointed out in another thread.

Great note my man. I love everything about this winery. I reloaded on the 13 and 14 from the winery this Summer when they were $30 or so each. Also bought the 15 at release price. Great labels too.

Thanks bud! I really need to snag some of the newer releases. Your notes on the 14 and 15 sounded awesome!

There was a good interview with the proprietors on The Wine Makers podcast a few months back. Worth a listen.

Thanks Paul! Any chance you have a link to that one?? I've listened to the Bedrock Wine Conversations podcast with Skyla Olds but am struggling to find the one that you're referencing. Thx!

There is a June 19th Episode with Mayacamas Olds who now works at Gloria Ferrer but she does talk about Sky as well.

Ha! I wouldn't worry about any of my half-ass notes creating a run on anything. But regardless, you can't have too many of these wines in the cellar....Especially at those current prices. Appreciate the heads up on the pricing btw!
