Napa

Napa. Beautiful countryside, wine and food everywhere. Opportunities to spend a lot of money. It’s a special place, but it is all about conspicuous consumption. We’re in the hotel room early for the second evening in a row – two tastings, a light(ish) lunch and a nice dinner is all this old body can stand. We *should* be out taking a nice walk, but the AC and comfy room are too appealing.

The hit wine of the day may have been the cheapest – a $50 complex 2009 Zin from Inglenook, now owned by Francis Ford Coppola. Ingelnook isn’t about jug wines anymore, and hasn’t been for a long time. Their older wines, now in the early 2000’s, are superb.

The CIA (Culinary Institute of America) is pictured below. Nice stop.
