The Wine: It's Your Birthday 2018
It's your Birthday (And all your enemies are dead!) in the words of winemaker Brent Mayeaux: "I had a barrel of Feliz Creek Sauvignon Blanc that was 50% macerated and 50% direct pressed, so it didn't fit in either of the previous cuvees. I decided to blend it with a barrel of Mendocino zin and some other odds and ends to make this beauty. It lives in the light red/dark rose no-mans-land. Chill and crush."
