When people visit Blackwood Lane Winery and experience their wines for the very first time, it is usually followed by a remark and a question: “This is the best wine I’ve ever had!” and “how do they make it taste so good?” While Blackwood Lane owner and master winemaker, Carlos Lee, keeps aspects of his traditional winemaking techniques top secret, he was happy to sit down with me to talk about his harvesting philosophy and the im-portance of quality versus quantity. Carlos and I are lounging comfortably in the member's section of his ter-raced patio in the late October sun.

Regal, majestic, noble, dignified and graceful. In these uncertain times, this rare and exquisite red wine will restore what it truly means to be presidential. Carlos Lee, owner of Blackwood Lane Winery, explains, “I wanted to make The Presidènt largely to earn the elusive 100 point score. The Referènce scored a 98, so creating The Presidènt was a labour of love for me and an extension of my perfectionist nature, and as the President of Blackwood Lane, I wanted to create a wine that would meet my highest of standards.
