Wine Tasting, Take 100

It never gets old. The more we learn about wine, the more fun we have. Today was a gorgeous day in wine country, only an hour or so from the dense city fog. We stopped by one of our new favs, Vincent Arroyo. We went to Beringer, which is kind of touristy, but always impresses. We were disappointed by BV, and we walked out of Mondavi before we tasted a thing. $20 for a tasting of 4 wines! Crazy! We tried 8 wines at VA for free! We also stopped by the Oxbow Market where we tried raw oysters for the fist time. They were not gross, but I don't see what all the fuss is about, they were salty like the sea. Next, we hit up the wine merchant for another flight and some cheese (the oysters were less than satisfying), and last but not least, some Kara's cupcakes (or Kara's Crackcakes) which were DELICIOUS as ususal.
Then we headed home...
As soon as we came to the GG bridge entrance, the fog rolled in like thick smoke. Luckily, we had a beautiful sunny day behind us. I'm ready for a nap.

(Notice Ryan's cooler bag, he refused to leave our purchases in the hot car, he brought them everywhere we went today.) I also noticed I spelled "tongues" wrong, but I'm too lazy to fix it, you get the idea.
