Napa Fun Time 1.3: Workin’ Our Way Back

After a fantastic morning  traveling North to visit Del Dotto and Cornerstone Cellars, we spent the majority of our afternoon in the Napa Valley working our way through the Oak Knoll and Stags Leap districts.

The next stop on our list was Trefethen Family Vineyards

We took the time to smell the poppies…

We tried their very tasty Dry Riesling.

We pondered the blend of grapes in their Quandary White Wine.

We gushed over their Cabernet Franc.

We also enjoyed the decorations.

It’s been said that Trefethen is haunted.

Not being one to tempt the spirits, we drove over to our next stop…

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. No ghosts here. Just good wine.

At Stag’s Leap, they don’t play. They gave us separate glasses for each of the wines we were about to taste.

They even put wine in the glasses!

While all of the wines were fantastic, we very impressed by the 2009 CASK23 Cabernet Sauvignon…

Fresh from the decanter.

I would have loved to take this one home… and I am still considering buying this one.

Does anyone have two hundred bucks I can borrow?

Stay Rad,

Jeff
