7015 Westside Rd, Healdsburg, CA 95448

Arista is cool, they only had three wines total to taste so it made things real simple. But they did have the US Open on in the tasting room on a HDTV, and the folks were real down to earth. Great Japanese garden in the back too with some great picnic areas.

Lots of fruit, good on the palate but then "kinda yuck" on the finish. Ends short and harsh. Hopefully improves in time.
