We were given pours of the following:
2008 Iron Horse Classic Brut sparkling wine (Sonoma). Did you know that Iron Horse is the wine of choice for American Presidents to serve to visiting dignitaries? No? Read more about that here…I was very impressed by the wine, by the way. http://inside-sonoma.com…
2011 Neyers Chardonnay Carneros)
2010 De Loach Pinot Noir (Green Valley)
2010 Dillian Barbera (Plymouth, Amador County)
2008 Michael Mondavi Family Emblem “Oso” Cabernet Sauvignon
They also gave us little bites of bread, cheese and meat to augment the wine tasting experience. Delicious.
I was torn between the De Loach Pinot and the Dillian Barbera, but in the end, the Barbera won (I love Barberas, what can I say!) We also got a 15% yelp check-in discount.
The wine bar is not that large, but the owners have done a great job of making it look spacious: light woods, beautiful white armchairs in little groupings, a long bar along the left as you walk into the main room, a glassed-in room towards the back…all make for interesting vignettes and keep your eye moving around the space.
I look forward to visiting this place again!
