    Oh, that was at Casa Piob. Had a 1/2 bottle of Loring Garys' Vineyard. Was wonderful.

    Had some Far Niente 2007 Estate Bottled Chardonnay tonight. Well, had several wines, but this one I remembered. Highly recommended.
    Have you had their Cabby, Pio? I have this hanging in the dining room and think I really ought to have a few bottles laying about. [​IMG]

    Far Niente is a good enough cab but overpriced IMO.
