If I Could Buy Only One – Oct 14th, 2017 VINTAGES Release

As part of our VINTAGES recap, we asked our critics: “If you could buy only one wine from this release – which one would it be and why?”

I suspect many WineAlign readers will be opening a bottle of Sonoma and Napa wine this weekend. It just seems impossible that a place so beautiful, and seemingly put on this Earth to create such beautiful things, could be so chaotically defiled and scarred. We have all connected to this place through its wine, some by having traveled and visited the wineries, others by getting to know the people behind the wines, as I have. I have a special message of condolence for Canadian Ray Signorello who lost so much. No matter what your connection, raise a glass to California this weekend. – David Lawrason
