Hi SB.
I apologize for not replying sooner; I have a hard time remembering to check the other categories as most of the chatter here plays out on the wineries threads.
My favorite SB is from Trecini...well, it was until this last trip. I haven't had the newest release. Now I am very into Pezzi King's SB; an absolutely wonderful wine. Others I can recommend are: Kokomo, Passalaqua,Willowbrook ( found at Hudson St. Wineries in Healdsburg),and Soda Rock.
For Chards, 2010 Bacigalupi at Pezzi King, Bluenose 2010 Chard ( also found at Hudson St. Wineries), Iron Horse Unoaked Chard, Hawkes 2011 Home Chard ( I know, whodathunk of Hawkes for a Chard??), Haywood, Paradise Ridge's is usually very good, but I didn't try this years' release.
I also try to steer SB lovers such as myself over to Bill Frick in Dry Creek for his Grenache Blanc. It is a delicious wine.

Thanks, Yes. I would love to hear your recommendation for sauvignon blanc. I do enjoy some unoaked chardonnays, but too much ML turns me off.

Welcome aboard Sauvignon Blonde.
Now that I can post again, let me say that I am happy to share our other SB favorites with you, but know that we favor the tropical, fruit forward style as opposed to the herbal/grassy style usually associated with New Zealand SB's.
If you like Chardonnay, the availability of less oaky, more fruit-driven style is coming back it seems and we have several of those, too if you're interested. All told, we ended up with about 2 cases of whites this time, which is VERY unusual for us, so just say the word and I'll be happy to share the notes/impressions of our finds.
Thanks for joining us! Its always fun to have a new voice on the board.

Hi yesilovewine,
I'm new to this forum, but, as you can see from my user name, love sauvignon blanc! I'll be sure to try the Angeline Sauvignon Blanc which you mentioned.

Forgot to mention our gem for this trip...Sweet T's. What a great place for Southern cooking....especially the pulled pork BBQ...it was "slap yo' mama good" and portions were huge- we had enough left over for lunch the next day.
Its really a California take on Southern cuisine, but they didn't mess with it too much.
We had appetizers of hush puppies and chicken livers, entrees of pulled pork platter, and dessert; with bar tab it came to less than $75. Considering the portion sizes were big enough for nexgt day's lunch we felt it was a good value.

We enjoyed a meal at LaRosa Taqueria on Courtyard Square this trip. That's in Santa Rosa, by the way.
I'm not a big fan of Mexican food, and we actually didn't know it was a Mexican place when we saw it...we just liked the building. ( Kinda like choosing your wine for the label, I guess... )But I'm glad we went.
Very friendly staff and a comfortable place to have a casual dinner, La Rosa is styled like a Mexican Hacienda. We had "build your own" style fajitas and a huge burrito along with bar tab and the total was only $50 including the tip.

We enjoyed 2 dinners in Santa Rosa this trip.
First night was at Flavor Bistro which is located by the courthouse, next to Rendezvous bistro which is bigger and easier to see from the street.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Left Brain had the Duck Breast and I had the Beef in Pastry, which I was expecting to be similar to a Beef Wellington but it was actually more like a Beef Burgundy stew that was served in a deep dish with the most amazing puff pastry cover; beautiful presentation. Our food was well cooked and the service was impeccable. There was a huge group that arrived toward the end of our time there- I think we counted 12 chairs at each side of the table- so it got a bit loud, but overall it was a very good experience that we would repeat.
They offer a wine tasting scenario once or twice/ week with about 15 wines to choose from. The labels I noticed were all very small production places I have heard of but to that point had not visited.
Good place, good food, good price. Definitely worth a return.

Second night, we returned to Jack and Tony's Restaurant and Whisky Bar, a place we have visited before. We love the pseudo Speakeasy vibe here, very jazzy with good music and and easy air about it. Left Brain had the Trout with mushroom rissoto and I had the Pounded Chicken with polenta. Both were delicious as we knew they would be.
We like the variety of dishes available here and, being Southerners ( by the Grace of God ), we enjoy good bourbons. Jack and Tony's has a huge menu of whisky's from all over the world, and you can do tasting flights from here just as you would do wine flights elsewhere. I have forgotten the number of Bourbons offered, but the list is several pages long. Ryes, Scotches, and other varieties I've never heard of are available.
Nice place, good food, always good service and not unreasonably priced. Worth a look if you are in the area.
