    Well the tasting was late and so is the posting. Went off to Italy where none of the bottles had "imported by"...and am catching up on what I left behind. So just in time for your holiday shopping, the winners were:

    #1 White- Beach Kite Sauvignon Blanc 2012. (30 pts.).

    (There were only 2 whites).

    #1 Red - 99 Vines Pinot Noir; no year but at $9.99 I wouldn't get too fussy (34 pts.).
    #2 Red- Concannon Petite Sirah 2011. (26 pts.).
    #3 Red- Hahn Cabernet Sauvignon 2012. (24 pts.).
    #4 Red- El Cortu9oolo Tepranillo 2011. (23 pts.).

    The rest is history. except for Pinot Evil Pinot Noir (sans year) which lived up to its name and took 15 pts.

      I knew there was a bottle missing! But all were left in the bar cabinet. I searched the recycles since they all went there after my posting, but it was not there. So I retrieved the notes from the recycle and see that you are right. I should have used the notes instead of the bottles!

    • Carolyn J.

      But where did that bottle go??:).

      November 9, 2013

  • Jill M

    Grazie Millie Carolyn. I'll have to put the 99 vines on my list of things to try (again).

    Well, we have had a record 54 comments but not too many have revealed what they would like to bring. Let them eat cake! LOL

    October 4, 2013

  • Diane M.

    If you are on the waiting list and there is an opening, sign in and change your RSVP. That's how I got on.

    There has been several cancellations over the last few days, and the number of RSVPs has fallen to 17 (from, I believe 20). Are some on the waiting list going to be invited?

    Sorry, change of plans. Enjoy!

    October 4, 2013

    1 · September 28, 2013

  • Carolyn J.

    Just a quick note to check your calendars' for next Saturday's meet-up to update your RSVP if your plans have changed. Please also let me know what you plan to bring. Since it was bargain wine I thought we could off-set it with gourmet food. So Roy listed the 4 categories above- time to claim your choice. Someone asked for suggestions so antipasto, veggie or traditional, cheese w/ crackers, pasta salad, guacamole or other dip w/chips, cavier (lol), deviled eggs, pate', jerk drumettes, salads, sushi, spare ribs, sweet & sour meatballs, pumpkin pie, anything from Modern bakery or whatever you feel like eating. I am doing shrimp cocktail. My place is on the "C" green line & if the Sox are playing & you plan to drive, let me know.

    September 19, 2013

    Happy to do it. Sat., Oct 5th @ 7pm is the new date so please update your RSVP's asap. Have sent Roy the info so let's see who shows up

  • Diane M.

    AGH. I've been waiting for this but have a wedding out of state
    on the 10th and can't make it if this date is correct.

    September 17, 2013

  • Carolyn J.

    Just a thought to rehab this event. Would be happy to host if we do bargain wines and gourmet snacks. :)

    1 · September 13, 2013

    • Roy

      Carolyn, can you email me the date, time, number of people, and any other details you would like and I'll update the MeetUp. Thanks for taking it on!

      September 17, 2013

  • Virginia G.

    I can make it. What is the address.

    September 13, 2013

  • Jill M

    Still don't have a date, though, right?

    September 5, 2013

  • Anthony G

    It's great that we are getting comments with interest but we need to hear from Roy on how he wants to proceed with this because Oct 8 was a holding date only. I'm sure we don't want to do this on a Tuesday night.

    September 5, 2013

  • Tracy

    Sounds fun, I'm in

    September 5, 2013

  • Roy

    This tasting has been postponed to a later date due to a scheduling problem with the host.

    If someone else would like to host it we can proceed, respond if you would like to host.

    June 17, 2013

    • Virginia G.

      Sure i

      September 4, 2013

    • John T.

      Andover works for me; I live about 300 yards from the station.

      September 4, 2013

  • david k.

    Hmmm, a bit confusing "4 spots available" and "RSVPs Closed" I guess this is a "meetup" glitch. Anyway, I hope someone who has a large space can host, so many of us would like to find bargain wines.

    September 4, 2013

  • Pamela

    oops gotcha

    August 15, 2013

  • Pamela

    hey- it says there is room for 4 left. May I join +1?

    August 15, 2013

  • John T.

    Never mind, just found it down below.

    August 11, 2013

  • John T.

    Why are RSVPs closed if there are 4 spots available?

    August 11, 2013

  • Pamela

    how strange- no idea how it marked me as no. Is there a wait list?

    July 17, 2013

  • Diane M.

    Would love to attend this tasting. Waiting for the date to get on the wait list.

    July 12, 2013

  • Pamela

    Would live to get on the wait list.
