The awards are lined up for a good reason at this "cult" winery, ~ you could use all sorts of adjectives, but 'yummy' can sumarise a good portion of the offerings. Three whites and eleven reds were available when we passed by with friends. Their $40+ Pinot Noirs were better than the $60-$75 offerings found in two other notable nearby settings. A grand selection of 2006-2010 Zinfandels and two great Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignons. We left with a rich 2010 Dry Creek Valley Petit Sirah. Nice experience.

This may have been my favorite wine during our trip to Napa and Sonoma Valley in March 2010. The winery is really a tasting room in Healdsburg, but I'm giving it a four because Healdsburg is a very charming town. The tasting room itself is very stylish, but nothing exceptional. The lady pouring the wine was friendly and very knowledgeable, but the tasting experience itself doesn't really stand out in my mind. What does stand out, however, is the wine. Wow! When I think of the really good wine we tasted during our trip, this is always one of the first places to come to mind. It may be my absolute favorite wine of the trip, although it's so hard to choose among so many great wines. This is one of those places that I often think about and wish I could return to. When the wine is that good, you don't really need a fancy tasting room! There was so much going on with this wine. It's subtle wine--not overpowering like so many California reds. But WOW! (As an aside, I'll add that my husband wasn't really blown away by this wine, but he prefers a much bolder style, so it's all about what you like.) I highly recommend trying this wine. Even if it's not among your favorite, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
