The Gambini family winery is the takeover target of organized crime and it's up to Jessica to discover who is behind the murder of a Mafia hit man.
A pre-Titanic (1997) Billy Zane guests stars in this episode as one of the Gambini family members.
This is another episode where Jessica is shown to discuss the murderer getting off, due to their victim either being a worse person or because they had a sympathetic reason to kill them; she also did in Murder Takes the Bus.
Victim: Ben Skyler
Killer: Salvatore Gambini
Cause of death: Poisoned wine
Motive: Sal had hired Ben to kill him in hopes of uniting his family against the attempted Mafia takeover of their vineyard, but he nearly killed Tony Gambini instead.
