I was up in the Anderson Valley a couple of weeks ago and tasted at Navarro and Husch. Was really impressed by Husch; and in particular their Renegade Sauvignon Blanc ($18 600 cases), which is fermented only with native yeasts, and their Carignane ($15 200 cases). Both were unique wines at great price points. Navarro impressed as usual. Was especially stoked to find Verjus (Chardonay verjus to be exact) for something like 8 bucks a bottle.
If you have a chance to make it up to the Anderson Valley (and you should, it is really pretty and gets you away from the madness of HW 29)be sure to stop at both wineries. Cheers-

I have been up to Navarro too. I remember trying the Edelzwicker or something like that. I think it was a blend of Gewurtz and Reisling...very crisp and tasty for around 10 bucks.

The Edelzwicker is a delicious and affordable blend of GewÃ¼rztraminer, Riesling, and Pinot Gris. I agree, Captain D, that tasting in Anderson Valley is a great change of pace from Napa. Handley Cellars and Christine Woods Winery are fun stops as well.
