This was a fabulous trip with 4 plus great days of tasting followed by another 4 days on the coast. The trip was fun and educational. The highlights certainly were the time spent with the gracious Mark Vlossak of St. Innocent and the evening tasting with Tom and Deb Mortimer of Le Cadeau. Along the way there were many many outstanding wines and great meals. Too many to single out.
Vintage notes: 2010 really looks good, 2011 depending on the winemaker may be showing well or still need time ala the 2007 vintage. The 2009's were a mixed bag, from some they showed quite well, but from others the hotter vintage proved to be problematic.
All good things must come to an end, but we had a hard time not stopping on the way out of Dodge.
