I do not claim to be any kind of wine expert. Every so often, however, I come across a winery that makes something so unique and yummy that I feel compelled to share.
La Clarine Farm is a husband-and-wife winery up in the Sierra-foothills boondocks. They make organic, experimental wines out of grapes I've never heard of combined in ways that never have occurred to anyone before. Result: The only wines I've ever had that snap me back to specific, vivid memories of contentment. 2014’s Priscilla, for example, is a Central Valley sunset that I watched from my rooftop when I was 22.
