I woke up to this view over the last 2 mornings while de-toxing in Carmel Valley. A mini-vacation day of sorts, complete with breakfast in bed and a 2-hour hike! That's what I'm talking about!! Big thanks to Bernardus Winery for their hospitality - the Bernardus Lodge is just about the nicest place I've ever stayed, great service, wonderful food and ahh the views!!! I cracked open the 1999 Marinus last night - WOW. Great depth, solid fruit and lingering black cherry finish. Stunning! (Views are from my room and the top of my hike yesterday)
Enjoy the pics...a big weekend is coming up for TexaCali Wine Co. in the Russian River area - stay tuned!
