Met the winemaker, Napa native Harry Heitz of the Heitz family cellars label. He was a nice fellow. Unfortunately, I spaced taking pics. I will post a pic of the wine ordered when it arrives. We’re doing another wine dinner on the 30th. Far Niente/Nickel and Nickel. Really looking forward to that experience, as it’s going to be great wine, and in a new location for one of our favorite restaurants.
OOOohhhh, that Daou Cab Reserve is pretty damn good!

I never really gave an update on our Daou winery visit from my Paso Robles trip...but I did pick up some exceptional wines. If you want to splurge, take a look at this: Daou Patrimony Black Label We picked up a couple of bottles, and my wife also picked up the Patrimony Blanc wine.

Special occassions,- we'll be ready LOL

I enjoy it. It’s amazing the difference between the reserve and non reserve for both of these wines.

I looked up the Patrimony. There's a waitlist on the website, score for you! That, to me, is one of the coolest parts about actually visiting the winery. You can try and buy wines that you just can't find elsewhere. Then, when you open it, the memories add to the drinking experience, too.

So, the Phoenix area is really no fun to be around during the month of August. We are contemplating a drive up the coast for a couple weeks to get out of here. Days 1,2 in Santa Barbara. Days 3-6 in Cambria. Days 7-8 in Half Moon Bay to visit family. Days 9-13 in Napa, then we'd make our way home. I already have a pretty solid list of wineries going. We just have to figure out how to finagle a couple business things remotely to take that much time away. I'm excited, though, as it should be a good trip!

BMWGUYinCO It was the pics of your car on your road trip that inspired this thought. Driving the M3C up PCH sounds like something I need to do! We haven't taken a long road trip in many years, so thank you!

Picked up our wine from the Materra Wine dinner we attended last week. Two bottles of each. Opened a Right Bank for dinner. Still good…

Wow, awesome to hear! Can't wait to see your pics as you always do a fantastic trip report of the wineries you visit.

Believe it…..from Sam’s Club. Hint of dark cherry and pepper. Gentle on the palate and dry…almost Bordeaux like. Great value @ $18.97. Pairing it with a Cowboy Ribeye also from Sam’s.

Follow up……the wine was superb especially at it's price point. The ribeye….not so much. Trust me, I know how to properly grill a tomahawk ribeye. The quality of the meat is #1 and sadly this Sam’s Club Choice Angus steak, while a bargain at $18.97/lb, was not very high quality. I’ve bought Sam’s Club prime ribeyes and filets many times and they are always very good. I cannot recommend the “Cowboy” Ribeye. Lesson learned. I’ll return to Fresh Market and happily pay the price for high quality meat.

I kid you not, 10 minutes after getting home from the hospital yesterday UPS arrived with my wine club shipment. I didn’t even know it was coming until it had shipped. Good timing!

I bet that first opened bottle of Cab tasted better than you ever remembered since you were at home!

Glad to see the wine posts returning Hubba! Keep getting better and enjoy every sip.

It was soooo good!!! My first taste in 7-1/2 weeks, heavenly.

Thank you for the good words, and will do! I have PT 4 times/week for at least the next 12 weeks. (More as needed and approved by insurance.). My goal is solidly walking with a walker for short distances by the time that 12 weeks is over. Keeping on keeping on!

For tonight. The new toy works great, pulled the cork right out and dropped it right in hand cleanly.

The Winemakers Muse. This year's release it’s a red blend, and very good.

PCH is a great trip.. '95, 318i convertible. PHX to Moro bay, then PCH to Eureka, Redding, Reno and back. B&B's northern CA coast.. lotsa fun.

Grapes from Paso and processed by the good folks at Tor in Napa. So good. Sorry about the scuffs on the label, bottle is a bit of a fat bottom.
