Sounds like a fun evening!

We tasted at Revana a number of years ago - maybe 6-7 or so... The tasting fee at that time was probably $25/person. (which, if you'll recall, was fairly steep back then!) We bit the bullet and went, and were very surprised when it was to taste only one wine - the 2004 Cab. I can't recall at this point what we thought about the wine, but I can recall thinking that we wouldn't need to return. With so many outstanding wineries and wine makers in Napa Valley, and Sonoma as well, you just don't need to settle for a less than awesome experience. And the price variation is pretty remarkable - I have found many a bottle in the $30-40 range that can easily stand up to those in the $80-100 range.

Hope you are doing well and feeling great! Happy Holidays to you and yours

On November 20th we were invited to attend the 3rd Annual Stock Your Cellar Event at St. John's Restaurant sponsored by Riverside Wine & Spirits. There were 34 different wines to taste, mostly California. We purchased a 2011 Brown Zinfandel at $34.00, a $25.00 savings per bottle. The second purchase was a 2007 Highlands Cab for $44.00, a savings of $28.00 per bottle. The last purchase was a 2011 Buccella Mica (a Cab blend) for $65.99, a savings of $44.00 per bottle. None of these had we ever tasted and all were what we felt were the cream of the crop.

I had always wanted to taste the Revana Cab but their tasting fee and per bottle price are a little out of my budget. The did have this wine in their tasting and I am happy to say that I am not unhappy that I ever tasted it. The per bottle price is $169.00 and they had it for sale at $47.00 off. Didn't even think it was worth the discounted price.

Looking forward to our March trip.

Life is very, very good.
