After leaving Castello di Amorosa, we drove to Joseph Phelps for the tasting our friends C&D had set up for us.
Joseph Phelps has not only great wines, but also glorious views from their tasting terrace:
The tasting we had included their Insignia wines:
My favorite was the 2006 Insignia, followed by the 2005 Cab. I am a Bordeaux girl at heart but love Cabs as well, so this tasting was right up my alley.
Me with our friend M. Yes, I am a hobbit. Ironic since she is from New Zealand 😀
For lunch, M had made reservations at Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen, a super charming restaurant from the owner of Brassica and Mustards. I loved that the window boxes surrounding the restaurant were full of vegetables!
I had the Backstreet Burger, my husband and J had the Adult Grilled Cheese, and M had the Duck burger. Everything was delicious and we headed back to the hotel for a nap. More about my birthday weekend tomorrow!
