Pedigree of 100 point Winemakers

For a second, forget the remarkable $25 price tag. This is the poster child of a California region. While making its way into the history books and the work of one of the top winemaking duos in the New World. Massive doesn’t begin to describe it—not unless you add profound, artful, and an incredible value.
First of all, a heritage blend of old-vine Barbera, Primitivo, Petite Sirah, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon. So, the Andis Wines Painted Fields 2017 put the distinct regionality—a prerequisite for any world-class wine—of the Sierra Foothills on full display. While the mouthwatering acidity and freshness derived from high-elevation plantings lend a high-toned edge to the deep concentration and mountainous complexity that come from abundant sunshine and rocky, granitic soils.
