    HI Buzz with Napa Wine Tours & Drivers in the Napa Valley. I have not tasted any Walla Walla Cabernet. I have live in the Napa Valley since 1955. Worked for Robert Mondavi and have tasted my share of Cab. Spottswood is really good, for a winery that is not open on the weekends. When it comes to Napa check out our wine tours. http://www.napawinetours.info. Good luck in Walla Walla
