Napa Valley, Nov. 20, 2004

I thought winter would be the low season for Napa Valley. I thought it would look bleak and drozy in the bright winter sunlight. But I was in for a pleasant surprise. The leaves on the vine apparently still think it is Fall. The color was a feast to the eyes, while the wine tasting toxicated me. I drunk in the color as well as the sunlight.
