Inspiration and Temptation

By On Jun 18 2013, 7:00 am

What you taste at the beginning is what you taste all the way through. California wines are intensely complex. Peppery, buttery; hints of leather [...]

Hot Alpha or Sexy Beta—which would you really choose?

The Alpha. Highest rank. Strongest and most courageous, or best able to forge alliances. The Leader. Gets the best of everything. The Beta.
