Before we made it to Bodega Bay, Don and I stopped by two wineries, one of which was Everett Ridge Vineyards and Winery. It is the second oldest winery in the Dry Creek Valley.
Here's the pic of what we bought that day in their tasting room. The first is a Diablita 2007 Cole Ranch Red Wine. ($18) Very nice price for a very good wine. It's a Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah blend in a screw-top bottle. Easy!
The second bottle is a Pomo Nation Bi Si 2009 White Blend. It is the first and ONLY 100% native owned label in the country. It runs about $20 a bottle. It's an amazing blend of spices, lemons, and earthiness.
The last bottle of wine is the Everett Ridge Petite Sirah 2008 Dry Creek Valley Estate ($32). There's nothing little about it though. It's very "masculine and brawny." Dark in color with aromas of "leather, cigar box, tobacco, and charred oak, with a backdrop of blackberry fruit."
It was a gorgeous day and here's a close-up of the bottles. Try to order some today. It's great!
