hoping that dinner is "something special" will definitely let you know I don't know Hawkeye, you may not find anything left by the time March comes, we have at least 5 cases going down to Florida

Hi Pooh, Tonight is the big fancy dinner. Hope it is really something special. Just don't drink up everything before we get there in a couple weeks. Cheers! And life will be good in a couple weeks. Cheers!

By the way, thanks for breaking the boredom on this board the last couple of days.

Off to a strong start Pooh!

We brought home a bottle of J for our daughter Jillian! It has since been consumed, but the bottle with its pretty "J" sits on her bookshelf and holds a tiny "candelabra" of tea lights... Great moms think alike and all that

Day 1

Ramey Wine Cellars ~private tasting atmosphere, my husband and I were the only ones there, very pleasant,
~our favorite... 2007 Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay and the 2006 Cabernet Annum

J Vineyards ~we parked here thinking it was Rodney Strong, they basically share a parking lot, we are not at all into sparkling, bought a 2002 J Vintage Brut to save and share with our daughter "J"essica one of these days really liked the 2007 Pinot Nicole and the Ratafia dessert wine. Overall we were glad we stopped.

Rodney Strong ~walked up to the tasting counter and tried the Reserve ..... loved 2007 Reserve, pretty good stuff.

Chalk Hill ~the highlight of the day!! -walked in at 2:55 and asked if we could join the 3:00 tour/tasting, they were very accommodating and we were impressed by the property, very nice tour. We had started the tasting before we left, and came back to continue, the rest of the tour left and we were left there with a group of four that had come to taste, great time! we even took a tour of the 'secret room' a wine cellar down stairs, outstanding! Our favorite... 2007 Estate Red, pretty good stuff, and the 2006 Estate Bottled Merlot
Cheer! as Hawkeye puts it... LIFE IS GOOD
and that was our first day.... oops.. gotta head out to our 10am appt now
