I will brag. I am the king of Twin Cities wine deals. Remember the $7.00 Joh. Jos. Prum Riesling deals? My recommendations sell out wines very quickly. When Davenport Cellars decided to retire from the wine business I bought a mixed case and loved the wines. My posts on Wine Berserkers moved a ton and I mean a ton of wine. Hundreds of cases. Unlike the other local Twin Cities Wine Educators and Writers I actually promote good wine. Most of what they promote is a joke and any one with a palate knows this. There are 8 cases left of Patch from Davenport and I am drinking this 91 point right now. $11.00 if you sign up for their Discovery Club. Shipping at $35 a case is a deal unlike so many wineries that sock it to you! Enjoy and thank me later.

Day 2: Floral, spices, bright fruits, minerals and red hots. An interesting wine and tremendous value. This is the most intense version of this wine and getting a lot of spice from the Cabernet Franc. 91 points (91 points)
