Wine Tasting: The Heavyweights (Reds)

So you really only drink reds-- the heavier, thicker, and chewier the better.  No wussy Pinot for you!  Very well.  For this meetup, we'll take you to the ends of the earth to find the deepest, darkest, bloodiest reds, the ones that make sophisticated wine tasters shudder with horror at the big jammy deliciousness.  These are the brazen buxom redheads striding into the ballroom in a black dress; nothing subtle about them.  Still, secretly everyone wants some.

Wines for Tasting (subject to availability):

- 2009 Quinta do Crasto Douro (Duoro, Portugal)
- 2010 Calade des Eveques Gigondas (France)
- 2009 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva [Negroamaro] (Puglia, Italy)
- 2010 David Bruce Petit Sirah (Santa Cruz, California)
- 2010 Molleydooker "The Boxer" Shiraz (McLaren Vale, Australia)
- 2010 Breca Old Vines Garnacha (Munebrega, Spain)

As usual, we'll start off with a quick discussion about smelling, tasting, pairing, buying and storing wine. Gourmet small bites will be served to pair, but you may want to plan on dinner after. Please pay via Paypal when you RSVP. (If you would like to pay by cash or check, send an email to [masked].) If you don't eat/like any particular food, PLEASE let us know in advance-- otherwise we'll assume you eat everything!

      Thank you David for everything it took to put that on! That was really a wonderful tasting. Also was nice to experience a restaurant I'm sure I never would have gone to on my own. Great food with great wines, what more could one ask for!

    Y'all know I'm a wuss about reds, so I have to sit this one out ;-) (Although, I do have a bottle of the Salice Saletino that I'm working on and I think it's quite drinkable!) Have fun!
