Napa and Sonoma Vacay last month

We weren't able to take our flight this date, but next time maybe in November or will have to wait until spring.
Darioush Winery, surprised me I did enjoy it.  They have the best Pistachio nuts there and serve with the tastings.

Inside the Cave at Kenzo, quite immaculate.

Need I say more, love this wine.

 The pool at Solage Resort.  Love it here too.

From The Best Thing I ever Ate episode.  Steak Frites at Solbar.  Snake River/Kobe with Frites.  Onolicious!!!
