We were fortunate to get some time with Karen, thanks to the organizers of the inaugural CabFest Napa Valley, who graciously granted us on-stage time in between wine panels.

Even some thirteen years after its original publication the book remains the best-selling wine book on Amazon. It is fleshy and full-bodied and has this beautiful core of fruit. Tall, dark, and handsome. KM: You know, I think it comes from being a writer.

Rather, you do what the Romans likely did when building the Coliseum, and chisel away a little at a time, not thinking about the monumental, near impossible task at hand.
