We went up to the Sonoma Alexander Valley Wine Country for the Winter Wine
Alexander Valley Valley Vineyards
This was great winery. We went on a tour of their wine caves and quite
seriously that was one of the best smells bottled in a cave that I have
ever encountered. Rich and warm. Mmmm...
2000 New Gewurz
Sweet without being cloying. Fresh and clean.
1999 Estate Pinot Noir
Full chocolaty, velvety with smooth mouth feel.
1999 Sin Zin
Rich, brambly, smoky, smooth.
Canyon Road Winery
Geyer Peak Opulence Dessert Wine 750 ml
Sweet floral, tasty, with light orange blossoms, a touch of sherbet.
1997 Barwang Reserve Shiraz
Smoky, warm, black cherries, black pepper, with a touch of tannin.
White Oak had
a gorgeous facility with a lovely fountain plaza.
1998 Zinfandel, Alexander Valley
Served with a minestrone soup. Figgy, light, with a touch of pepper.
Johnson's Alexander Valley Wines
Located in a cool old barn style building, they have a fully functioning
1924 Robert Morton Theater Pipe organ. Apparently, they periodically play
silent movies. But anyway, the wine.
Oak, toast, butter, with a sharp flavor at the end.
Orange creamsicle, warm, almost sweet.
1997 Late Harvest Riesling
A touch of apricots on the front of the tongue.
