I purchased in June of last year. Was $6 less then for the 2005. Odd to see the retail price drop from $184 then to $137 now and our price go up $6. Can the winery maybe speak to the price difference between the offerings? Obviously not a complaint, I always like seeing prices come DOWN. ;)
I don't have any notes from the 2005, but remember enjoying the first bottle we opened. The other is still sitting in the cellar.
It's great to be a Florida Gator!

This label is our largest production wine and widely distributed. Whereas the Atlas Peak Cabernet- Atlas Peak Mountain bottling (black label) is solely fruit from Atlas Peak (and some Howell)-no valley floor fruit. The production methods are different and the mountain series wines and see far more aging then the NV Blend.
Outside of the aging, what production methods are different? I'm guessing oak. What else?
