Anderson Valley

When making the 2013 Kraisey, Sparkling Merlot Jared thought it would fun to try a still or sans bubbles version. We are calling this "Still Kraisey" given the lack of bubbles and fact that pressing Merlot to make it like a white wine is STILL crazy! Think of this as a full bodied Rose wine. And of course with only 23 cases it will be gone before we blink.
