Time to wine?

Well, it’s coming close to the next trip to wine country…let’s see who is out there and opinions to chime in!

I have been to Napa and Sonoma more times than I can remember. Been through the Santa Cruz foothills many times and finally did Paso Robles down to Santa Barbara last year. Italy once, but so good a trip.

Let’s see what others think out there.. I am staying with a friend in Santa Rosa (Sonoma Valley) and most of the wineries will be there (prevent a drunken drive on the Oakville Grade, although that can be entertaining…for others).

What will we be doing? Domain Carneros (club member, free wine and great treatment makes it a must), Audelsa (Glen Ellyn, awesome cab and merlot), Enkidu (Kenwood, very new and good), WoodenHead (southwest of Santa Rosa, diamond of a find), Artiste (Healdsburg, club member and Bion rocks), Thumprint (Healdsburg, Starr is awesome and the wine is very good), Goldeneye (Alexander Valley, enough said here…PINOT)….Not to say we are going all those places in the weekend, but, that “type” of wineries.

Any input, suggestions, comments, slams, critiques, etc?

Also, going by the “Wine Cave” south of the Sonoma Square (common table environment, small and cozy…owner is hilarious and knows his wine well…all the food is SPICY, but good).
