The spilled wine on 680 yesterday

Was anyone besides me wondering what the wine was that spilled out of the truck on Hwy. 680 yesterday? Unfortunately, it was  pretty good stuff: The Big Paw Chardonnay and Howling Syrah of Santa Maria’s Ambuellneo Vineyards, a favorite of sommeliers at Gary Danko, Michael Mina, Fifth Floor, French Laundry and Martini House. That’s quite a list, eh? I talked to owner Greg Linn yesterday and confirmed. They lost 7 cases of chard and 5 cases of syrah headed for shipment to their mailing list. The latter is particularly painful, as they only made 100 cases of the syrah.
