  • It can be tough, which is why you want to use OT's pull. Driving or not, though, you need to spit or you just won't be able to taste as the alcohol dulls your senses.  No one is offended when you spit.  Mike Smithwill admire your technique if you can hit the drain in the barrel room.  You seriously should go to a tasting like that--it's rare the...

There are a co... Read More

  • Aline.  Do not hesitate.  Send that PM to OT.  Mike Smith's wines are outstanding, and not ones that you are going to easily find at your local retail store.  Time spent with him will be a memorable highlight for you and your friends.Quite spendy, but Auberge du Soleil has a very panoramic view of Napa Valley.  It looks like they have a bar/bist...

  • I have bought several bottles of the Heitz Cabernet Sauvignon and I love this wine.  EM's recommendation to visit this winery is a 'must do' if you have the time.  I will try to go there the next time we visit Napa. Read More
