1. When I got my latest WineSphincter in the mail w/ the World's..er...Universe's Top 100 wines, I immediately ripped out the pull-out page and speeded down to KoKoMan's. I had to have that Duckorn Merlot. I pleaded & whined to Mark to get me a btl, even offered him my first-born son. Alas, it was not to be had at any price. So let's go onto #2. Nope...none available. So we continued to work our way down the list. Bingo....#31...Forge Riesling...he had one btl left...which I, of course, jumped at. But...ye gads...#31. I'm worth much more than that. I am such a pitiful example of humanity if #31 is the best I can do. Life is no longer worth living...I'm such a wuss.

2. Not exactly sure what LouisBarruol, of StCosme, brings to this project. Riesling (or PinotNoir) would not be an obvious grape for him.

Alas, we just don't see many FLX wines down here in the lower 48.

Barruol apparently visited the area, got impressed by its potential, and was interested in a cool climate project. The other partners are long time guys on the FL wine scene, mainly growers, IIRC. You won't likely find it on a shelf in CA, but Boyette is the winemaker at place called Hector Wine Company, where Forge is based, that makes a pretty decent Syrah, of all things.
