98-Point Review

MX Wines are not sent out for reviews, but somehow this one mysteriously appeared.  It was lovely and deeply appreciated, but we really want our dear customers to independently form their own opinion, then hopefully get like-minded friends excited about MX Wines.  It’s an old-fashioned method, just like my style of winemaking.

Incredible sophomore release from Calistoga wine shop owner Margaux Singleton. From the legendary To Kalon Vineyard, originally planted in 1868 in Oakville and now managed by Andy Beckstoffer, this is an amazing effort.
