Sorry this is so late; got back from the tour, etc., late last night, still jet-lagged. Not so much that I can't remember the Double Lariat, though. We tasted it last Sunday (8/3) at the tour Meet and Greet. I thought it was a standout, dark fruit, plums, blackberries, soft tannins, especially for a 2011. Maybe not a "screaming deal," but a very nice wine at a decent price.
Always keep a bottle of Champagne in the fridge for special occasions. Sometimes the special occasion is that you've got a bottle of Champagne in the fridge. - Hester Browne
Filmmaker/winemaker Francis Ford Coppola says his two professions are almost the same and that each depends on source material and takes a lot of time to perfect.
The big difference: "Today's winemakers still worry about quality."
