12 O'Clock High--an SF Chronicle Thanksgiving Pick

We are very excited to see our 2009 12 O'Clock High among Jon Bonne's 2011 Thanksgiving recommendations: "2009 Alta Colina 12 O'Clock High Estate Paso Robles White ($28, 14.8%): This relatively new label owned by Lynn and Bob Tillman has found a great white expression from an estate mix of Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc. Big but plenty energetic, with a subtle honeysuckle kick from the Viognier but also a quicksilver nerve - think hay and steel and dried apricots."

Check out the full article to see his other recommendations.
