Family Values is Sofia McClain’s favorite wine with Sunday night dinner. From the Santa Ynez Valley, it is a wine that never disappoints. It’s ready to enjoy today or lay down for the next 5 to 7 years.
TASTING: Medium-bodied. The strong fruit-forward aroma on the nose reminds you of a jar of jam. Explore the touch of rich blackberries, black cherries, light pepper, and a hint of cacao.
