I'm officially back from Jamaica and today was my first day back to work. Even though, I'd like to live in Jamaica, and a tropical island sound amazing, with amazing weather. I love my job too much to live there, it's just not a place for the wine business. Not gonna stress over it too much because we're officially back on schedule with #ChairmanMonday and couldn't be more happy about it! Let's get to the wine!

Overall, this was a great bottle of wine, very nice structure, nose, palate, body, acidity, and finish to it, makes this so enjoyable on every sip.
Here's why this bottle is so pricey...
1. Single Vineyard so they sourced the grapes from only one vineyard and 2. Only 280 cases were made, so small production *better soil, better grapes, better harvest*
