Have you been to the vineyard? I see you’re from the Bay Area. We visited back in around ‘08 or ‘09 and they have a fun story. The owner decided he wanted an authentic European castle on the property so he had a real 13th century Tuscan castle (or different pieces of them) shipped from Europe to CA brick by brick. It has towers, rampart, a moat, even dungeons and a torture chamber. Pretty crazy.

Unfortunately at the time i thought their story was better than their wines. Hopefully this means that they’ve improved greatly. I do remember that the merlot was probably their best work, though.
