Wine Spectator Top 100 - Year 3!

  • This location is shown only to members

On your mark, get set, go!  This is technically Night 2 as I am having night one with a separate group.  Sorry!  But trust me, Night 2 is a little more palatable on your wallet.

The rules!  92 points and above, reds only.  A number of them are already spoken for as people who have attended past events know how to get the search started.  The list can be found on my Meetup site under More, Files.  You must bring notes and be prepared to share the info as we pour and taste.  If you're super shy, bring the info and we'll get someone to present for you.  No biggie.  I will send out a reminder closer to the event about decanting the wine before you come over.  VERY IMPORTANT!  The wines below are already spoken for:

#2 Chateau de St. Cosme Gigondas, #28 Calera Pinot, #40 Eberle Syrah, #61 Bodegas Beronia Rioja, #72 Turley Zin, #76 Austin Hope Syrah, #83 Morgan Pinot, #89 Honig Cab

DO NOT RSVP UNTIL YOU HAVE A WINE (I will move you to wait list if it fills up and people with wine are waiting). Post immediately, first posted, first served.

Just send me a note if RSVPs are full and you've found something.

As we've done before, we'll do variety of pizza and some other munchies.  $10 per person.  The pizza is from a non-chain and pretty good IMO.  

For anyone who would like to hang out after, bring an extra bottle of something interesting to share.

Let the games begin!

    Friends,

    I am totally looking forward to finally meeting you! One small request: on the pizza, could we please have 1 non-pork option? Thanks so much.

    January 27, 2013

    • Lisa M.

      Absolutely! I plan to get a good variety, including vegetarian and if their meatballs don't have pork, that could also work. Looking forward to you joining us!

    • Zaheer A.

      Thank you so much! I hate to be the new guy asking for special stuff, but I just wanted to be prepared in case I needed to bring my own. See you soon!

    You will be moved to the waiting list if you have RSVPd yes with no wine and someone on the waiting list posts their wines. Please be fair everyone and make sure you can get the wines, not just post what you hope to acquire. Reds only!
