Mine got caught in the spam filter. I've been on for 2 years. Definitely interesting wines.

First time on the list too. Never tried these before, but saw a great write-up on them. Any opinions/thoughts about what to try?

I bought a pair of the Sumo (mostly Petite Sirah) and Caldera (Mourvedre blend) from the 2010 vintage expecting to open one of each as a tryout and stash the others in the cellar. They are all gone! YUM.

The wines aren't cheap ($60) but absolutely gorgeous and they will sell through. I suppose some mind find them a little slick and crafted but I really enjoy the deep, nearly weightless fruit.

Good news. I got an e-mail from them indicating they would have ground shipping as an option this time. The wines are a bit pricey and this was a deal breaker before for me. Hopefully, I will be buying a few this time.
