How could you say "no" to this face??
Here is a link to their website which goes into further detail on their relationship with these fantastic creatures.
As if that wasn't enough to get you up to this winery, their restaurant, The Sonora Room, is always a great place to eat. Great food, great wine (and very reasonable prices on back vintages), and a great view. You can't go wrong there, and we had a fantastic lunch during this trip.
We tasted a total of six wines on this day, but three of them had been tasted and reviewed before, so I'll bring you the remaining three here:
|Burrowing Owl 2015 Chardonnay ($30.00)|
|Burrowing Owl 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon ($50.00)|
|Burrowing Owl 2014 Meritage ($50.00)|
Complex aromas of cold cuts, tobacco, earth, vanilla and mocha. The palate is rich, round and juicy and features orange zest, blueberry, tobacco, violets and crushed black pepper. Tremendous structure, showing potential for long-term aging.
Next up: Just down the road is a winery known as much for their artisanal bread as they are for the wine, Platinum Bench!!
