Another great Slow Bowl Party

Vineyard

Wow! What a great weekend. I just got back from a wonderful time in Paso Robles. You know how sometimes when you repeat a party or revisit a city, that it doesn't live up to the original time or memories. The 2nd Slow Bowl was just as much fun as the first one.

I enjoyed the wineries that we visited this weekend better than last time. We made a repeat visit to Castoro. They have great wines at a reasonable price. We also had a great picnic spread.

The next winery was Tablas Creek. I really wanted to visit this winery because I love Rhone wines and wines made by the Perrin Family. The wines were very good but they definitely need a bit of aging.

Yesterday we visited Justin which is gorgeous. Their wines are more in the Bordeaux style. I had tried several of these last year but I really like them this year. I didn't bring any back but I'm going to try to pick up a few more here. I really loved the Sauvignon Blanc. I didn't think Sauvignon Blanc was a good varietal for the area. I think of it as more of a cooler grape but they do an excellent job.

Justin also has a great restaurant and a lovely B&B. It would make a great retreat.
