“It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.”
The Napa Valley has always evoked a Twilight Zone sense of feeling to me. As soon as I exit right off Interstate 80 and onto Highway 12, I turn the bend around the first foothill and embark into the mysterious region where I immediately begin to lose the tension in my shoulders and my deep breaths end with a smile. I’m fortunate to live near one of the most prominent wine regions in the world. Only 83 miles from Downtown Sacramento, my family and I set out to meet my brother Brandon and his friend Christian at VJB Cellars. On an absolutely picturesque 65-degree day in late March, we were blessed with a slight breeze and a gentle sun. It was the perfect day to be out wine tasting.
