Napa 2016 - The Supplies
Bringing lunch supplies helped immensely. This is what we bought at the grocery store Saturday morning in the rain. Debbie had given us the red chest as a present. It worked beautifully since it it collapses (fit into the luggage well).
From Luna, we bought a Pinot Grigio and a Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pinot Grigio is our second favorite type of wine (Sauvignon Blanc being #1), and we bought the Cabernet to stretch outside of our box a bit. It tasted very good. For a red anyway. lol
Which is why we also bought the St Supery Oak-Free Chardonnay.
The castle described Il Passito as being "bottled honey" and I think that is quite right. They gave us chocolate to eat with it, and that combination was fabulous! So we have some chocolate for the day we decide to open that bottle.
I don't really recall why we bought the La Fantasia. Both these castle wines are going to be very sweet which is typically not our thing. But maybe there was a good reason why we chose these. We shall see.
Lastly, there is the Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc we bought at V. Sattui. Three bottles of each, shipped home. These are right up our alley and I look forward to opening them.
