In this occasional series, Pavle Milic (co-owner of FnB, Baratin, Bodega and AZ Wine Merchants in Scottsdale) will spill about his current mission to learn how wine is made -- literally from the Southern Arizona ground up. Today: What's in a name? And some advice from the pros on labeling.
Todd Bostock (winemaker at Dos Cabezas Wine Works) and I have been talking about the name and label of this wine since we started our collaboration. Naming anything that is close to the heart is taxing. I have three healthy, beautiful, precocious children and naming them was not easy. Needless to say, I've been obsessing over this.... What do I name this wine?

Stay with me because it's going to seem as though I'm detouring from the subject, but I'm not. I don't know what happens when we die.
