V. Sattui Winery

This winery has it all! It’s like Disneyland for wino’s! It’s crowded so be ready but the crowds are there for a reason.

Their are 3 tasting rooms, we decided to taste in the market and had a server named, Edwin, who was beyond knowledgable and made the tasting very fun with his humor. It was very crowded but I didn’t feel as though I was neglected at the tasting bar. I tried many wines ranging from their popular fruity Gamy rose to their brandy fortfied Madeira which is a sweet port.

Tasting:

2014 Los Carneros Pinot Noir ($39): sweetly scented with notes of cherry fruit and cinnamon.

2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($45): currant fruit and colors it with dusty spice and hints of black olive.

2014 Los Carneros Chardonnay ($52) : ripe pear, fig and honeydew notes to finish of white peach.

2014 Dancing Egg Riesling ($25): very crisp and refreshing. Fruity and every so slightly sweet not your typical Riesling.

2015 Gamay Rouge ($24): juicy flavors of ripe strawberry, crisp tart cherry and cranberry. 

Madiera ($59): The wine is sweet and luscious with flavors of almonds, caramel, toffee and orange zest.

My purchases:

I ended up buying the Madiera which is $59 a bottle but after opening can be kept anywhere from 1-3 years. I saw this as an investment.

I also bought the 2014 Dry Rosato because I thought it would pair nicely with light apps and was the perfect balance between dry and fruity.
