Yanyi's Favorite Wine
Hard to pick really, it depends on the days and the mood, but The Prisoner Pinot Noir has always been one of my favorites. I still remembered the first time I tasted it—the subtlety of the delicate savory notes blended with soft tannins thanks to the Russian River fruits jumped right out and spoke so much volume tome. I am a fan ever since.
