Tasting Ten Group – Petit Verdot with @Sam_WineTeacher

From the Cellar with @Sam_WineTeacher

In addition to the weekly wine review and the various other, usually wine-related, articles I write for MyVanCity, I am including a new one that will appear from time to time. I’m calling it, ‘From the Cellar’.
