The Wine: It's Dangerous to Go Alone 2019
Stagiaire Wine It's Dangerous to Go Alone in the words of winemaker Brent Mayeaux: "Merlot (with a splash of Savvy) from Feliz Creek. Picked riper than the fruit that went into Cheeky Bisous. Fermented 60% whole cluster with 40% juice pressed on top. On skins for 14 days."
