"Goat without a Rope" was an expression my great-grandfather used, and nickname my grandfather gave to me.  If you know goats, you know that without a harness, they’ll wander all over - out the gate, onto your car, into your neighbors yard to eat cans.  It's a term of endearment - at least I think it's a term of endearment.  Regardless, this wine is my tribute to my grandpa, Jose Barraza.  A man who chased and netted the American Dream.  As a boy he picked cotton, grapes - whatever produce would bring his family dollars to pay rent.  His father Pedro brought them from Durango.  They had nothing.  My grandfather grew up, and had two children of his own when he took a pay cut as a ditch-digger to become a bricklayers apprentice.  He wandered.  A few years ago he retired, a seasoned mason with hammers for fists.  At the height of his career, he had crews enough to sky two large block buildings simultaneously.  I want to be just like him.  Working towards the best, even if it means taking a step back every now and then.  Cheers.
