You might need a doctor's prescription

I always believe a winemaker is an artist and what a perfect locale like Sedona, Arizona to implant a boutique winery. Owner and winemaker Maynard Keenan, from the rock band Tool, opened Caduceus Cellars winery. With a name which is akin to the Greek symbol of medicine; you might think that you would need a doctor's prescription to partake in this wine.

Their web site is amazing. It has great animation and interaction and I spent an hour exploring and learning about their offerings. Mr. Keenan really has a passion for food and wine having spent months in Europe learning and cooking to experience the diverse culinary paths of the old world.

At Mercy now is Caduceus Primer Paso 2008 : a blend of Syrah and Malvasia Bianca. It like a Côte-Rôtie from the desert of Arizona. You can enjoy Caduceus Primer Paso 2008 for $90 a bottle (in limited avaibility).
