Napa Sonoma Trip Day 3 Part 1
So if I took this trip 3 months ago, why am I still writing about it, and just now getting to it? Well, I’ve been really busy, but this blog is the telltale heart of personal journals, so without waxing poetic about my exploits, I feel like it didn’t really happen. Wow, blogs have really improved the quality of my life. But here it is, the dramatic conclusion to my 3 days in Napa and Sonoma, the third day-Sonoma.
We had many stops during this beautiful day in Sonoma, the first was Eris Ross in Glen Ellen. Eric Ross is dedicated to making amazing Zins and Pinot from mostly the Russian River. Their Pinots have an incredible Old-World quality that is most certainly age-worthy, and their Zins are likewise age-worthy, with great vibrant acidity. They source from some incredible vineyards such as Saralee’s and Occidental. These are cerebral wines that have a unique feel. The story behind this winery is interesting as well. 2 old friends, Eric Luse and John Ross Storey, former acclaimed photographers from San Francisco daily newspapers, and longtime epicureans, decided to get into the wine business.
