#StoneTheCrows single vineyard (Three Twins Vineyard) overlooking Lake Hennessy vintages 2010, 2011. B2B vintage variation with fruit/floral components with 2011 showing more restraint, but sublime structure from both—-a testament to the vineyard. @Monteverro 2010 Chard is bright and demanding of the Tacos I am about to whip up. #MemorialDay weekend kickoff.

Basking in the late Saturday afternoon sunglow, Jonny says to his wife: “Wife, these wine glasses won’t fill themselves.” Then, somewhere in Los Angeles the ground shook, but no one was there to feel it.
