I first learned about Elyse through a local wine store that does tastings and turned me onto the Elyse Cab from the Morisoli Vineyard.  Still one of my favorite Napa cabs.  I added Elyse to our itinerary for our Napa 08 trip and we had a delightful time.  It was first thing in the morning during harvest and a beautiful day so we had our tasting outside on the patio.

Elyse Winery

We tried nine different wines and were very impressed with many of them.  Standouts were the C’est Si Bon blend ($28, similar to Chateauneuf du Pape style), the Zin from the Morisoli Vineyards ($37, they grow very good grapes there) and of course my fave Cab from the Morisoli Vineyard ($80).

Lovely winery that I would visit again if in the area.  Tastings are appointment only so plan ahead and appreciate that it is not too crowded.

Downsides?  None other than potentially difficulty getting an appt. last minute.
