    I love this winery in general, but the Red4 is always a great bang for your buck. They change the blend a bit every year, so it always makes it fun to see what the next vintage is going to be like. I don’t think this winery gets the respect it deserves from RP, WS, etc.

    They also make a counterpart “White4″ that is a really interesting mix of European grape varietals such as Vermentino, Verdelho, Viognier, and Sav Blanc. Great “porch wine” :-)
