2017 Afternoon Diversion -  pH 3.62  Alc. 13.99%    The label on this wine shows an actual radar image (courtesy of Flightaware.com) of an amazing storm which we flew through in early 2018.  The flight earlier in the day  had to make quite a stunning (and time-consuming) diversion to the south.  Hence the name.  This wine is a 50/50 blend of Shiraz and fantastically overripe Pinot Noir from the 2017 harvest.  We decided that American oak would give this wine the light oak flavors to enhance the roundness of the blend.  This is a lovely wine paired with beef, lamb or on its own.  Absolutely one of the surprise favorites from the 2017 vintage.   Free run
