Normally when I explore wine I go for the whites first. I'm not sure if that's me getting them out of the way since I prefer reds, or if I subconsciously like whites more than I think I do. Either way, this time I would like to drink some reds first instead. It seems most of the feedback I heard at the last meetup indicated most of you prefer reds anyway... so let's do it.
Maybe "popular" isn't a good term here... and "re-explore" might be more appropriate since we've all likely had these varieties before... or potentially what I'm going for is "most common grapes." The theme for this event will be to get together to taste and discuss Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinot Noir. I'll supply a couple stereotypical styles of each, and I ask that you bring a $5 donation per person to pitch in so I don't go entirely broke. This will be a tasting of 6 wines total. We made it through 5 last time, but we socialized for a while before tasting. So if we're diligent I don't see 6 being a problem, and that will give us plenty to talk about.

This residence has two cats, so please keep that in mind when deciding to attend if you have allergies or simply don't like furry feline quadrupeds.
