Tasting (walk around)     Weekly Event     Wine    

We adore Bordeaux varietals, especially Cabernet Sauvignon, which has the unmistakable profile of black fruit (currant, raspberry, plum) alongside seductive cedar tones, nippy tannins and mouth-filling flavor.  But, can we tell really the difference between Old World and New?  Does the Haut Médoc’s “graphite and leather” born of unique gravelly soils really translate to a recognizable French stamp?  Does California’s sunshine flooded North Coast produce reds that are more straightforward and open in youth as conventional wisdom has it?  Let’s find out together!  We show 10 Cabernet-based wines served “blind”, not telling you what they are, and you’ll deduce, or cheerfully guess. Recent vintages on both sides of The Pond have been terrific, so there’ll be plenty to appreciate.
