This summer we've spent one week in Napa, trying lots of wine. It's not our first trip to Napa, but it was our first time here at BV.
When it comes about wine, we like heavy, full-bodied red Cabs. But we keep our minds open to other good wine (which we found here in Napa).
BV is quite a busy place and has nicely done tasting room. But it was hard to get some good spot at the bar without bumping in other guests too much. But that's alright. The service was ok. No ups or downs here.
Since we already had quite some wine today (and planning on having more later) we just went for the "regular" tasting menu. That was four Cab. Sauvignons for 20$, a good price.
It was pretty decent wine. Some of them were a little on the lighter side, compared to other red Cabs. The 2005/06 Cab. we liked the most. But it did cost 65$.
Don't get me wrong, I'm willing to spend that amount for a nice bottle (or more, no problem...). But compared to other red Cabs here in Napa, we thought it was a little overpriced... They have some decent wine here, and the Reserve tasting might have better ones (a reason to come back), but the ones we tried were good, but didn't "wow" us enough. Good, but not great.
But, like mentioned, we might come back anyway for the Reserve tasting.
