[MUSIC] This was written up in Food and Wine Magazine and it's a new wine that took me 10 years And about two million miles of flying to come up with the idea of a wine [UNKNOWN] boarding pass. But it was in Food and Wine magazine last month and it's a [UNKNOWN] and it took me also about eight submissions from the U.S. government to get that back label approved. But it's 100% [UNKNOWN] and the reserve wine of course, does anyone want to guess what it's called? Exactly first class. Once you fly first class you never go back. This is also a reserve level Shiraz and it's actually a wine that I literally came up with, because of all my experience and travel. But it taught me something about wine. Wine's about going somewhere. When you open a Tuscan wine you go to Tuscany. When you open up a wine from Napa, you have a little bit of Napa in your life. And so this wine sort of [UNKNOWN] speaks to the idea of going to a destination of wines. [MUSIC]
