I opened the '97 Estate Cuvee at a dinner party in a local restaurant
recently, along with several other bottles from other producers in Napa
and Sonoma. The folks at the table are not wine experienced and most of
them had never even seen the labels of any of the bottles on the table.
The first empty bottle was the Estate Cuvee and several of the guests
requested more information on how to get a hold of some. Since I am the only one in this area (Banner Elk, NC) that has this wine, I do believe my wife and I will be having guests for dinner in the near future.
'Wish I had more.
Best, Jim Cowan
