End of Summer in Napa Valley
A few weeks ago, I had the fortune of attending PlumbJack's newest winery, Odette's end of summer soiree. The afternoon featured rabbit paella, fabulous wine and good times with family.
I wasn't blown away by the tasting room - it was subtle and small which is strange for Napa. I was however, quite impressed with their Chardonnay.
This is saying a lot because I typically strongly dislike Napa Chards which are over-oaked, too buttery and flat. The 2011 Adaptation Chardonnay we drank was phenomenal. It was slightly acidic, tropical and refreshing. Reminded me more of a Sauvignon Blanc from NZ (my favorite). Kudos to Odette for breaking the norm for Napa.
