Our driver in Napa highly recommended that we make a quick stop at Auberge du Soleil for a drink.  The views of the valley he said were amazing.  Plus this is one of the nicest and most expensive hotels and spa in world.  I checked the daily rate and is was $1850 per night.   One day I now tell myself I will stay here.  You can smell the money as soon as you drive up and are met by three valets who park your car with a smile.  We entered the small lobby and walked to the right where we found a jam packed bar and outdoor patio that was equally packed.  The bartender told us to see the guy at the end of the bar for a table.  We approached and asked for a seat on the patio overlooking the valley.  He showed me a list of customers waiting for the outdoor seats and said it would be 45 minutes.  We took a table inside and ordered up some cocktails and appetizers.  By the time the food arrived we found a seat outside and joined the crowd on the patio.  The appetizers and small plates looked amazing here.  We went for the Duck Liver Mousse ($13) served with toasted bread.  This was heaven in a jar.  Loved every single bite and wanted to bring some home.  Also enjoyed the Roasted Bone Marrow ($15) with Horseradish Crust.  This was excellent went placed on bread.  Sitting at Auberge du Soleil and enjoying this food along with a glass of champagne was magnificent.  One of those times where you know you are in the best place at this moment in time.
