What is your favorite red wine that you think we all should try ?
It could be one of the amazing 2012 Oregon Pinots, It could be a Walla Walla Syrah, It could be a California Zinfandel.
For this tasting, it's your chance to introduce us to a wine that you love. Bring a wine that is currently available in stores and that YOU think we should be drinking.
Because we will have different varietals, the tasting will NOT be blind. We will arrange the wines by relative weight and alcohol %.
We will ask everyone to say the price and where they got the wine and if you want, a word or two about the producer/varietal/style (Not required though).
We will judge the wines on their relative QPR, Quality/Price Ratio for each one's region and varietal.
Each person will get 3 votes, the highest vote getting wine will get the pot (Minus Food Expenses).
$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). 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, 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.
Think you know a great red? 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.
