Of all the wines I tasted, the barrel sample of 2010 Pinot Noir from Frostwatch Vineyard & Winery blew me away. I had a nice visit with owner and winemaker Brett Raven and wound up ordering a case of this wine at a special futures offering. Trust me, that's rare for me.
The story of Ceja Vineyards is truly inspiring. The Ceja family migrated from Mexico to the Napa Valley in the '70s and a decade later purchased 15 acres of vineyards. They now have 113 acres planted and have opened a restaurant in Downtown Napa near their tasting room.
