There was exquisite if sparsely distributed food - tiny bites prepared by Meadowood, sumptious when you could find them, but delivered parsimoniously to the crowds - and toilets that one would not expect to see in a posh (primarily) Cab tasting event -
portapoddies in an outdoor loading area adjacent to the Beaulieu barrel room. Paradox city.
Highlights/new to me:
|Jody Hill of Caspar Estate|
|Tres Sabores Rose|
|Tres Sabores 2010 Zin|
The 2010 Zin from Tres Sabores (their Zin is always noteworthy) is a particularly fine vintage. It will be released later this year.
|Sampling Raymond's estate Cab|
Flora Springs - Also completed 100% certification of two of its estate vineyards (for its estate wines). Four of Flora Spring's current wines are from organic vineyards including its flagship Trilogy.
