Spring abounds as this image from Corvus Cellars’ Red Mountain vineyard vividly illustrates.

It’s time to take the wine outside!”

Please note that on the April 30th Fresh Sheet there was a lack of congruence between the star ratings listed and the parenthetical definitions of these star ratings for several wines. Specifically, several wines showed a four star rating () but showed a parenthetical rating of "(Good)" which would equate to three stars. Each of these wines should have been displayed as (Good). This has been fixed and a corrected version can be seen here. My apologies for the error and any confusion it may have caused.
