The Napa Valley paired particularly nicely with the mushroom soup.
Best pairing of the night. The Napa Valley showed particularly well.
Wagyu + brisket = fat bomb. Neither wine was a good pairing for the over-the-top richness of this dish.
Neither wine worked well with the cheese. Both were past their prime to my taste.
In general, the Howell Mountains are the more complex and interesting wines, but the Napa Valleys are sometimes a better match with food, and can be consumed earlier.
