ISO: The Perfect Wine (More)

How does one find the perfect wine? You go to the source, which is why I went to Napa, California. It was raining flood style when I arrived, but the weather cleared up before noon the next morning when I toured the Hess winery. There were detours due to the flooded roads.
Some of the wineries were designed to be tourist attractions from the ground up. They have lavish grounds, and one has a gondola lift for transportation to the tasting room. The surprise of the day was at Mumm where they had 27 Ansel Adams prints hanging in their art gallery on loan from the Adams family. I have never seen more than about half a dozen, even in a museum.
