With all of the great food that Napa Valley has to offer, it's hard to find favorite dishes that truly stand alone. Charcuterie is often overlooked by diners and sometimes an afterthought for chefs alike. However, at the CIA all eyes should be on this platter of cooked and cured meats. With pancetta, smoked duck rillette, pork pate, pork belly and a bevy of sweet and savory accouterments this is hands down my favorite charcuterie tasting in the valley. Visit during the afternoon and look for Bird behind the bar. If he is there just let him make you drink, he is a creature of his craft.
