Three new flights of goodness designed to delight. First up are three unconventional whites we think are delicious. Next three expressions of Grenache from 3 different places that could not be more different. Finally, a rare (for Wine Lab) presentation of the diverse styles of Zinfandel including a rare (500 case) release from Martinelli that is always highly rated.
