WineRelease.com's September 15, 2020 Monthly Newsletter.

This month we had 101 winery updates and 115 wineries releasing wine, a big month.

We were evacuated for 8 days because of the fires last month and now we are enduring smokey skies. Is 2020 over yet?

Celebrated my birthday with take out sushi from Morimoto Napa. My rule has always been to not go further than the sushi bar to eat, but take out is the best we can get. We toasted the night with a 2010 Napa Valley Parry Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon. It has aged well and was very enjoyable.



And now, onto the wine releases...
