That's almost doubled in price in the last two years but wait - it is currently $13.90 at Dan's at $15.00 at BWS - not available anywhere else.
Actually more than doubled.

I can't see anything from the link, but I can read the name from the URL (Ochota). Very sad indeed.
Yeah sorry I think the news story is behind a pay wall so not working. But yep it's Taras Ochota. Sad for the wine world, but more sad for his young family.

Any Idea who the winemaker is he is referring to in the article? Mac Forbes possibly?
No idea , will really need to look back on when this “young gun of the year” started (60’s? 70’s ?) and narrow it down one by one.

I’m more interested on who are those judges and wine critics that screwed the wine ratings.
