Napa II

Sandy and I returned to the Napa Valley today. We hit exactly one vineyard; Rust Ridge. It was buried in a little nook somewhere between Lake Berryessa and the actual Napa Valley, and it reminded me reeeeally strongly of Casitas Pass. They breed racehorses there. Sandy and I were the only ones there, so we drove along the dirt driveway till we got to what seemed like a parking lot. There were horses everywhere. Weanlings! Yay!

Then we spent about an hour or more chilling in the tasting room with Mark the wine dude talking about… everything. The wine was good. We both fell in love with their Sauvignon Blanc — so light and fruity and yummy. Mmmm.

Once we finally tore ourselves away, we grabbed food in St. Helena. Observe the lovely eclair we found in the Model Bakery. That was the yummilicious dessert to our grilled sandwiches and italian sodas.

A day well whittled away. I am content.
