Senuous Syrahs- BYOB or just show up to taste - Syrah Celebration!

Syrah, the workhorse grape of all the great Rhone wines has stormed the new world. On this MeetUp, we will taste Syrah from all over the world. I will bring a Chateauneuf Du Pape from the Rhone and a Washington State Syrah.

Come partake in the sensuous pleasures of Syrah. BYOB or Just show up to taste.

$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 Syrah? 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.

    Okay! My wine placed "in the money" twice out of two tries! This could be a real moneymaker for me . . . Any one recall what bag number was on the Charles Smith? I'm wondering if I liked it or hated it tasting blind (with my Oregon Pinot glass).
