A wee BloodyPulpit:
- Sara brought this as a mystery wine last night. Nobody was able to guess what it was. I thought PasoRobles but couldn’t get the variety. When she revealed it as a TJ’s $7 bargain wine, I was quite surprised. I’d not noticed it on my last foray of bottom-feeding at TJ’s…but then I seldom shop the Cab section. Then when I looked at the label, I understood why it was so good…CentralCoastWineWarehouse in SantaMaria. AKA CentralCoastWineServices…a custom crush facility. Owned by the Millers/BienNacidoVnyd. Winemaker is ClayBrock. They made several white Rhone blends that were mighty good…including the ComiqueRevolution. So…anytime you see a TJ’s cheepo and it says CentralCoastWineWarehouse…you should jump on it.
