The PlumpJack Winery founded by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom has had three vintages scored 96 or better by wine critic Robert Parker this decade.
Parker is an well-known wine critic, and has given similarly high marks to PlumpJack Cabernet Sauvignon vintages in 2002 and 2004.
Too bad the mayor won't be able to enjoy any, at least in public, after admitting to a drinking problem in the wake of revelations about an affair with his best friend's wife.
Then again, Newsom's drug of choice was reportedly white wine, not reds like cabernet, so maybe he won't be tempted to fall off the wagon after all.
