|Elizabeth Spencer's New Wine Tasting Studio|
Next stop Beringer where I got to see a some old friends, Ed and Adrian who work at the Rhine house and of course Carlos who is the king of the upstairs tasting room. I was happy to get a 2013 Chabot single vineyard Cabernet from Beringer, I have always had a fond appreciation for that vineyard. Also picked up a couple of the Private Reserve Chardonnays, they go great with either the crab sandwiches at Nick's in Pacifica or with the lobster rolls at Sam's Chowder House in Half Moon Bay. Did I mention our friends can walk to Beringers, I was soooo jealous!
Spence Winery) where we sampled a couple of great wines, one an unlabeled mystery that was either a cab or cab franc, it was good whatever it was and a great bottle of Spence 2005 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. All in all a very nice day in Napa with good wine, good food and good friends!
Just to make sure I don't forget, I ordered a 5 gallon bucket of Chardonnay juice from Peter Brehm, so it will be wine making time once again! Stay tuned!
