Blackberry Farm Barn's wine list is here
http://www.blackberryfarm.com/pdfs/2018 ... e_List.pdf

222 pages and each wine shows it's vintage. If these guys can do it for 222 pages how come restuarants with one or two pages can't?

Very impressive wine list......one wine that jumped out at me was the 2002 Pegau......a very disappointing wine that should never have been released

They are sitting on a fairly large inventory of vintages they will never be able to sell. Lots of 2003 European wines, 2002s from Austria (some good wines made, but the vintage rep is horrendous), etc.
Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government.

BF has long been famous as a culinary and vinuous destination. Just above my $$$ level.
Was big on farm to table before it became a buzzword
There are some wines I'd avoid there, but plenty of good stuff to choose from, and some decent deals in non-trophy stuff
Trophy stuff is typical pricey resort markups
But some of the PremOx era white burg prices aren't too bad, and if oxidized sure you wouldn't have to take it
