The Art of Wine – Napa Visit

Our last day in the California Wine Country was spent in Napa.  Our first visit was with Cade Vineyards, in the Howell Mountain are of Napa.  We toured their Cave, which was pretty extraordinary to see in person.  We tasted four wines, their Sauvignon Blanc, Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and Cade Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.  I have had the Sauvignon Blanc and the Howell Mountain Cab because we serve them here at the restaurant.

From there we headed down the mountain to the Plumpjack Winery.  OMG!!!  So non assuming, in the middle of a field, during harvest.  It was amazing to see them sorting grapes right there in front of us.  Their wines were spectacular.  These are the wines I am selecting for the Luxury Wine Pairing.  I had never had them before, not a lot to go around.  I will be carrying them now though.  So now I am off to see what the distributor can get their hands on.

The first picture is a view from Howell Mountain, followed by a picture of the cave.  Then a picture of the Plumpjack.
