Event Description

Cabernet Franc seems to be breaking out.... "As I travel from Santa Barbara to Napa Valley, I'm finding top producers making an isolation or blend of Cabernet Franc. Merlot seems to be making a comeback, Duckhorn Merlot was the #1 wine in the world in 2017 via the Wine Spectator and the value is very strong. Cabernet holds the hearts and minds and the pocket books" - Ian Blackburn. Come and blind taste up to 21 blind wines - from a very compelling list of top producers - a list valued well over $1600. This class comes with a petite cheese plate and is hosted by Ian Blackburn, winemaker, wine host, wine instructor.
