  1. Back in ancient times, I did visit the winery and felt the Petite Sirah was the best wine on offer. Looking at its website, I see that it has Charbono. Will have to seek it out. And funny that this is in the news now . . . the weekend before I spotted a bottle of the Cabernet at a party but I did not taste it. Now I wish I'd taken the opportunity.

    1. Huh, never heard of it before. Given that it was a fundraiser the selection may have had considerations other than the quality of the wines. Here's an article, reads more like it was written by a PR person than a reporter:

      Per Sullivan's "A Companion to California Wines," the same family has owned it since they built the winery in 1934, right after Repeal.
