I stopped in at the Andrew Murray tasting room on a busy, July Monday. It was nice to get the place to myself for a few minutes to discuss the wines I was drinking there.
While the tasting room is about the total opposite of my favorites, which are more like barns (Alma Rosa, Foxen) with an outdoorsy feel, the air-conditioning was welcomed on a hot summer day in the valley.
They have 2 tasting choices, 5 or 8 wines for $10 or $15. I did the 8 wines, but really wouldn't recommend it, as my favorite wines were all in the cheaper tasting. The other reds were good, but seemed to need some time.
What I liked was that they had 2 white blends, which I can't really remember seeing anywhere in SB. The RGB and the Eleven Unplugged were nice and a must on any hot day. I also liked the Eleven Red, which is a Cab Sauv/ Cab Franc blend. The Elevens are influenced by Nigel's amps in the movie Spinal Tap.
But a word of warning, all 8 wines they were featuring are limited supply. They did have a bottle of their larger production Syrah for comparison, but you have to ask.
