Has anyone tried this wine yet? Standards?

Yes, the wine is delicious. At the kick off party, people were shocked at how good the wine was. It showed in the same league as Silver Oak and Caymus that we served that night. We actually have a blind tasting coming up that puts Rick Ankiel Wine vs Caymus Cab. This will be the big test!!
