We Expect Him to Emerge with Muted Fruit, Tobacco and Licorice Notes, and Soft Tannins

Warehouse worker Mark Anderson, convicted of torching 4.5 million bottles of wine stored in Vallejo, California, has been sentenced to 27 years in prison.

The judge also sentenced Mr. Anderson to pay restitution of $70.3 million to the owners of the wine and the warehouse. Under California law, up to 50% of wages earned in prison may be withheld for restitution. At the standard prisoner pay rate of $0.95 an hour, and assuming a 40-hour work week and a 0% interest rate, it will take just over 27,000 years to retire the debt.
