Santa Fe Concorso, September 2011
 2011 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport
Our travels took us to Santa Fe, New Mexico September of 2011. While at the Santa Fe Concorso in Nambe, New Mexico, we saw all kinds of cars, old and new! Check out this one!
I don't even know what it is! Sorry!

The car experience was one like I've never had!  People really babied those cars so I didn't get too close! While we were there, we put out names in a silent auction for a week's stay in a casita on Canyon Road in Santa Fe. 

Well, a few months later, they notified us that we had won, so we made reservations to stay in March 2012. 

One evening we strolled down the road to the have dinner at the Compound Restaurant, known for its distinctive style and elegance since the 1960's. 
It is here in the quaint town of Santa Fe that I had Clos Pegase. I didn't have to go there to have this amazing wine, but it made it all the more special.

This is a 2007 Clos Pegase Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled ($50) from Napa Valley, specifically Calistoga. This wine is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, which Don loves and lives for! It is very dark, rich and complex with notes of blackberry, cherry, plum and cassis. It deserves the 90 points it received from Wine Enthusiast. 

By the way, I didn't plan for the couple in the glass to be there! It was just luck. I was more interested in getting the pic of the bottle! Enjoy!
