Bedrock, Carlisle, some Turley, Seghesio "Home Ranch".

This is, of course, old news....

...thanks for the suggestions.

I don't know that particular Seghesio.

You know, I bought a few highly rated Carlisles in 2013 and had one the other night - I was a little underwhelmed.

Just west of Healdsburg in the Dry Creek Valley. Very hard to get as their production is fairly low. You may be able to find it at the Bottle Shop in Healdsburg. Only two places in San Diego where I live.

...while I love Rafanelli and have been getting a case every year for the past 25 years, it rarely wins the tastings.

It's complex and benefits from some bottle aging.

The winners in the blind tastings tend to be more fruit forward and drinkable now.

The first year I bought a case was about 1992 and Patty Rafanelli delivered it to my front door in her old red pick-up truck.

We get a XMas card from the family every year.

Great wine!
