Winemaker Georgetta Dane Notes
In the dark and forbidden world of winemaking, a reform arose. It now became unclear whether our feruent Cardinal was a slave to the wines or whether the wines were a slave to him. The two sinister worlds became so intertwined in the vineyards that we could see a papal legacy revolution before our eyes. What cultivated out of this revolt was a tongue enveloping Zinfandel so decadent with spice and so ripe with blackberries and plums that the pleasures that ensue would sure to be sinful.
