Finally getting around to posting wines from my annual Napa trip from two weeks ago. Always goes by quick! Lots of fun new stops this year.

The Fantesca property on Spring Mtn is gorgeous, and their tasting room at the winery is stunning. Really enjoyed getting to try more of their wines.

Give it time and this will be a point or two better easily. The only Fantesca wine not made by winemaker Heidi Barrett, but by assistant winemaker Tony Arcudi. A good balance of classical Cali Pinot with some old world flair. Fruit here is slightly underripe and a mix of red and black berries. A definite herbal influence with underbrush. Lots of layers here...rhubarb tart and candied black cherries up front before evolving to show herbs de Provence, cedar, crunchy cranberry and tobacco leaves. Complex. Delicious.

We enjoyed the wines we tasted with him. Particularly, his 13. He was about to bottle his Pritchard Hill...only 2-3 barrels. I was going to buy a bottle and try it but, he was leveraging it to sell his Arcudi wines and was not guaranteeing even one bottle of the Pritchard Hill...only as a wish. Not a fan of that system and believe you aren’t either. However, I have heard good things about his Pritchard Hill.

@David T : Definitely not a fan of that system. With him making Howell Mtn cab, I’m very intrigued to try it at some point. Didn’t know he was making a PH cab.

@Shay A definitely recommend trying Tony’s wines when you are back at the property! He makes such a small quantity which is why he offers them in 3-btl increments and the Pritchard Hill is in even smaller quantities to the howell mtn. He made it as an accompaniment to that bottling, not as a way to get people to buy it

King Sue Double India Pale Ale

My wife is the beer nerd in our house, and I don’t approach beer like I do wine. I know that some traditionalist hate on this super trendy, hazy, OJ-looking style, but I like it when done well, and this is the best one I’ve ever had. Juicy, creamy, and delicious. This producer’s stuff is on point. — 17 days ago
