I have a genetic defect inherited from my grandmother: I cannot resist a good sale. And provenance was having a sale this particular week, so I had to drop in for a tasting (just like in the Far Side cartoon where a large-bodied woman clings for life to a lamp post as she is mercilessly sucked into a candy shop). In this case, they had their 2008 To Kalon Cabernet marked down 40%, along with a few other deals. After tasting this wonderful wine, I felt compelled to pick up a bottle. They had the 2010 Hewitt available for preview at 30% off, so my friend bought one of those (and I get to cellar it). They also had some of their new releases open which I was looking forward to trying.
