Quotes of the Day:
Dancing Crow 2017 Lake County Sauvignon Blanc: “No surprise that the Best-of- Class Sauvignon Blanc in the $17 to $21 price range, despite a crowded field (61 entries), would be from Lake County.

Dancing Crow Vineyards 2017 Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon: “Cabernet Sauvignon in this price range isn’t supposed to be this profound in expression of variety, place and vintage, but consider that it comes from Lake County, which for years has been providing Napa Valley wineries with grapes and now finally is being recognized openly for the caliber and character of its fruit.”
