Wine Country: Yountville, Goosecross winery

Goosecross  1119 State Lane, (800) 276-9210, (707) 944-1986.  Tasting daily 10-4:30.  Tours by appt.; M-F at 11 & 2.  Located off a valley cross street, back among the vineyards, this friendly tasting room is situated in a cozy barrel cellar.  The winery is very small, has no distribution, and only sells its wines here.  A tasting might include a crisp and fruity Pinot Gris, a smooth Merlot with a toasty oak finish, and perhaps a heavier Syrah with cherry, pepper, and black licorice flavors.  The video below demonstrates an orbital wine decanter.
