A MUST HAVE  95+ Point, Cali- Bordeaux blend

Vailia From the owner/winemaker, might be the wife of Russell From the owner/winemaker of Herman Story, but she is her “own” woman in this man’s wine world! Desparada is the culmination of 20 years of traveling and working for and in wine. Vailia has seen every side of the industry, from winemaking to harvesting, to importing, cold calling for sales, to managing brokerages, to working on restaurant floors, and managing a mobile bottling line. There’s something in wine that keeps her going. She’s a traveler by nature, and Desparada is what carries her. A no-nonsense lady, making no-nonsense, well-priced and good quality wines with a twist.
