Today is not an opus on Vito Corleone, nor a synopsis of the Godfather Trilogy - it is about the crimes committed by one Organized Crime winery and their winemaker, Greg Yemen ... the charge: "did you really put these wines into bottle?"
The case: Often overlooked and forgotten, as some wineries are when they go through upheaval and change in the wine making, Organized Crime seemed to flounder a little after the departure of winemaker Andrzej Lipinski and seemed shocked once Ross Wise took flight to British Columbia. But the phoenix has risen with Greg Yemen at the helm - and for the second year in a row he's put some pretty amazing wines into bottle ... the only verdict a jury can rendered once all the evidence below is revealed is: Guilty as Charged.
