Rain, rain....and more rain this year at the #ranch! Experts are saying it's been over 10 years since we've seen this much. The ponds and streams are filling up and there will plenty of water for autumn grapes sending good thoughts to those along the #russianeiver, #napa, and in #sonoma!
Pictures can do no justice to this art, food and wine experience. @lasalette_restaurant new tasting menu is AMAZING. Enjoyed (essentially) an 8-course menu (some extras thrown in) with a wine pairing for three hours with Lloyd Davis of @corner103! And a personalized note from Chef/Owner Manny to close! Highly recommend going! #Portuguese#Sonoma#experiencesonomavalley
Robert Stevens: Acrid plasticine fat rotten fruitbowl dirtiness with an oxidation chaser. Smells like a nursing home and tastes like the night-sweats of a grave-digger. Acrid returns for an encore dressed as Tannin from the last act but a pigs-blood wash can do nothing for the burn.
Martin Ray: Grainy neon glares a salty refrain on wet boardwalk past rear restaurant entrances piled high with trash and the faint glow of BOH smoking in rainy lamplight. Tasting is an adrenaline surge of siren somewhere, but you can't tell if they're coming down this street. Everything quiets down in the finish, except that waitress from Mendocino you banged in the walk-in. She still talks to you.
