Today we had friends over for a nice rib-eye steak. And to complement it a full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon.
Winery: Hess Collection
Price: $13-15 (Utah prices)
One of my favorite Wineries in the Napa Valley. The drive is gorgeous especially in the fall. They have a fabulous garden, not to mention an art gallery. It has it all.
Cassandra loved taking a drive late afternoon on a warm Indian summer Saturday. The top down on her car, the breeze ruffling her hair. Fresh, that's how it felt. Today she'd stop at her favorite winery for a tasting. But not until after she explored the gallery to see if there was any new art to admire.
Climbing the stairs, she passed the old typewriter still in it's place then rounded the corner and faced the headless. One of her favorites. An artist had used live models to mold the bodies. About twenty headless mud people stood as if nothing were missing--out for a walk. Though she loved it, she couldn't help but be a little freaked out by it.
Today she had the gallery to herself. Nice. She would wander and gaze, no hurry.
Disappointment ran through her when she heard heavy footsteps behind her. A long enjoyable browse was out. Turning slightly to the right to see who had joined her, she was shocked to find no one. Twisting the other way, the room was still empty. Full circle confirmed she was alone. She must be more creaped out by the headless than usual.
She continued until she stood in front of Franz Gertsch's Johanna II, the naturalness of the painting was amazing. Startled by the hand that clamped on her shoulder she swung around.
No one was there.
(Keep in mind I do these scenario's for fun and at the last minute) Thanks for reading though, hope you enjoy some of the wines I recommend.
