What others are saying...
"very nice inaugural wine Stephanie! Even paired nicely with homemade beef tacos! Tried it again the next morning and shows good spice, aeration in palate brings more spice on finish with a hint of eucalyptus character on nose and palate after another day open on counter- I put all wines I recommend through a rigorous tasting over multiple days because to me that's real life! Cheers!" Sarah Francis, Sarah Francis Wines
"...To my Cabernet loving friends - both 2011 and 2012 now available. Case of the '12s coming to Wheaton. The 2011 was a truly Bordeauxesque dream. Honestly one of the best 2011 Napa Cabs I've had. And, Stephanie is one of the finest folks in the Valley that I've had the pleasure of meeting. She poured several tastings for me at Casa Nuestra and even shared her tuna sandwich. Great person and great wine." David L.B Wine Lover
"Finally had to open the bottle of your wine. OMG, you done yourself proud! One of the best Cabs I have ever tasted. Went great with my deep dish pizza last night....I also want to get a couple more bottles if you have any left." Bill H. Wine Lover
