The Other Cab, Cabernet Franc - The original Cab BYOB Just Taste In Vancouver

Note venue changed to Cellar 55 in Vancouver

This is your chance to try the original Cabernet, Cabernet Franc, which is the parent to Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc originates in the Loire Valley, in the Mid-Western part of France.

The grape tends to exhibit lovely bright flavors of Cranberry, Raspberry, Pomegranate and Plum, underpinned by earthy Cedar, Herbal and Green Pepperish notes. In the new world, it can get to full phenological ripeness. New World Cab Franc flavors are lovely full Raspberry, Plum, Pomegranate, Chocolate and Cassis with Leather, Pepper and Cedar underneath.

$5 if you bring a bottle, $10 to just taste. We will put the fees in a pot and the winner, (whoever brings the best rated bottle will take home the pot (Minus food expense). Blind Tasting.

Meat and exotic cheese plates provided.

Great Value event, the last 8 times, everyone got to taste at least 10 wines, and the winner took home money for bringing the best wine.

Once again, whoever brings the best wine (Blind rated), will take home the pot. If we get 10 people to show, the after expense pot should be at least $50, Last week the winner took home $95.

We will taste blind and rate using the Robert Parker 100 point system.

Think you know Cab Franc? Bring a bottle and let's find out. If you bring the best bottle, you will go home with the winnings. Last time the winner took home $95, week before the pot was $80.

Starts at 7PM, but feel free to show up early, I always have a bottle or 2 open.

So, Bring a bottle, throw in $5 to the pot or $10 to just come and taste.

    As if being sick isn't bad enough, I have no taste buds to enjoy wine tasting this week. Giving up my spot for someone else to enjoy. Have fun all & hope to see everyone soon.

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to make next week's wine tasting event in Vancouver. A work related conflict has come up for that evening. Paul
