Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L

Score: 98 WS.
"A unique wine that floats like a cloud on the palate but tastes of a garden in full bloom, of freshly plowed earth, of a stable of horses and worn leather saddles. Extraordinary marriage between fresh acidity and full-bodied, voluptuous texture, this is the sort of wine you'll never tire of drinking and one that should age . . . . Silky finish with grilled meat, animal-like accents. Have I said enough? It's just brilliant. [Only] 250 cases made." Wine Spectator, Sep 15, 1998
Provenance: The Façon Cellar
Notes: Damp stained, wrinkled, lightly bin soiled, nicked, and lightly scuffed labels, #0702-03.
Lot Location: Orange County
