It was a long over do get together Tom. I'm glad we finally were able to make our schedules work. That dinner was killer. I liked it better than the Painted Lady, which is supposedly, the area's top place to eat.
I had no idea Pinot Noir could vary so much from winery to winery and also with each winery's different vineyards. I've always like the varietal, but was a bit concerned that tasting too much of it would saturate my pallet. Even after 20 or so wineries during our four days in the valley, I was still excited to try the next winery. I plan to go back and hit a few more wineries in the near future.
