Napa Valley Film Festival and Flavor Napa Valley bring plenty of energy to wine country in November

Posted: November 13, 2014  By MaryAnn Worobiec

Napa doesn't really have an off-season: Wine lovers can appreciate the views, delicious wines and awesome dining options any time of year. Even so, it used to be that November was one of the sleepier times around here—the period between the rush of harvest and the twinkling of holiday lights. But two relatively new events are turning November in Napa into one of the most exciting times to visit: the Napa Valley Film Festival and Flavor Napa Valley.

Stylistic Considerations: To Buy or Not

The 2012 Sonoma Pinot Noirs will require patience

Posted: October 30, 2014  By James Laube

I've been tasting more 2012 Sonoma-grown Pinot Noirs of late, and the same pattern of quality and style emerges as I've discussed previously: These are fairly tannic, tight, backward wines that are not showy, or fruity, or generous, terms often applied to California Pinots (and California wines in general).

Cyrus Blooms Again in Alexander Valley

After two years on hiatus, top Sonoma restaurant reboots in a new locale

Posted: October 29, 2014  By Tim Fish

Cyrus was Sonoma County's top restaurant when it closed two years ago. The timing was ironic, since Healdsburg's dining scene in 2012 was almost red hot, a fire that Cyrus helped ignite when it opened in 2005.

Partners Nick Peyton and Douglas Keane always said Cyrus was only on hiatus, and now the reboot is officially in the works. Sorry, reservations aren't being accepted yet. You'll have to wait until 2016. That's a long time, but considering what Keane, Peyton and their investors have in mind, it's just around the corner.
