Date Night Cab = Love & Inspiration
What a beautiful way to spend the afternoon… first of all, the drive upvalley to Calistoga was gorgeous (as usual). As I drove up to the address I realized I had passed this spot so many times in the past and wondered who owned such a charming barn-style building… I was excited to check it out FINALLY!!! Owners Suzanne & Shane (such a darling & hospitable couple by the way) have created such a romantically rustic and homey atmosphere. I knew instantly I was going to have a great time. They have one wine, the newly released 2007 Phifer Pavitt Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, a.k.a Date Night which was so amazing. Smooth… Sexy… Chocolatey… Fruity… and a nice, long finish… Yum Perfectly ripe fruit must have been used… I tasted the wine and knew that second how much love and passion they have for what they do… only the best grapes go into such a stellar Cab… better yet, the grapes are farmed 100% organically, gotta love that!
I wasn’t surprised the wine and place are so beautiful… before even visiting I was drawn to the cowgirl on the label and the name Date Night. The idea of a weekly date night and the fact that Suzanne & Shane live by it is incredibly inspiring and romantic… how can a sucker for love (like me) resist that?
Another perk is that Suzanne does the tastings… it’s always special when you get to chat and taste with a head honcho and hear the story from the person who made their dreams a reality. Beautiful!
A beautiful cowgirl on the label… A weekly date night… A heavenly wine… And a gorgeous chic barn for a tasting room… *sigh* what more do you want? Tastings by appointment.
