Celebrating Valentine's Day in Napa
Leaving Jack with Eric and taking off after the basketball game, Sharon and I headed to Napa for an early Valentine's Day celebration. We spent the afternoon wine tasting in southen part of the Napa Valley known as the Los Carneros. This appellation is known for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; we focused on Pinot Noir wineries. We made stops at Etude, Bouchaine and Domaine Carneros. It was a gorgeous afternoon with temperatures in the mid-60's.
We finished the day with an early dinner at Tra Vigne. We have eaten here several times before and Sharon made the comment as we were walking in that she had never had a bad meal. We split lobster risotto and short ribs for dinner. Frankly, the short ribs were not very good.
After dinner, we headed home and were back in Elk Grove a little after 9:00 p.m.
