This event will feature a third round of Santa Cruz Mountain's finest Pinots as we taste every Pinot that the Santa Cruz Mountains has to offer. We are in search of finding the "BEST" SCM Pinot. The winner of this next primary round will join in the final round of judging with the ranks of John's 2011 Hallcrest (SLHL) Pinot and Sarah's Vineyard 2011 SCM Pinot. (Winner of the first two primary rounds)

We will use the same cheat sheets from wine experts, and the knowledge we have obtained over the past while, we will taste and enjoy several Pinot Noir vintages together. We will all take notes and score each of of the wines using the same popular scoring scale as the experts. We will also be asked to write up a small one or two line advertisement for some of the wines we tasted. This mainly social get together event with a twist will feature some awesome high end cheese and crackers to accompany the tastings. I may try and get more wine glasses this time (no promises) so we can do closer comparative analysis.

There is a 25.00 charge for this event that simply covers the costs of the wine and the food. For those that have RSVP'd please provide payment for this event (I need to write a check to the VivoCruz for the wine/food).
