Wines You Can’t Afford . . . To Miss – RED BLENDS
This event is not going to get you those wines for free, but it will give you an opportunity to try a lot more of those wines that you may consider to be outside your normal budget.
This tasting is for Red Blend wines only.
As you may know, Red Blend wines are made with at least two or more grape varieties and contain less than 75% of any one grape. An example would be a wine made with 40% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 30% Syrah grapes.
Red Blend is a catch-all category for red grape blends that are not based upon a traditional regional composition. Assemblage information can be found either in the wine’s designation, review text or on the producer’s website.
Price of admittance for this tasting is a dish to share and a bottle of Red Blend wine with a retail value of OVER $50.00.
To help ensure that each person receives a sufficient taste of each wine, we have had to limit participation in this event.
We will nose and taste the wines, profiling the experience of each wine and taking notes.
Let’s REALLY look for something special to bring to this tasting. It can be a bottle that you’ve cellared for a while and you wish to share with other oenophiles, or one that you’ve always wanted to buy, but just can’t make yourself do it unless it’s a “special occasion.”
So bring that special bottle of Red Blend wine and a dish to share and be prepared to enjoy a memorable tasting experience!
NOTE: If you are bringing a guest, please bring two bottles of wine and two dishes to share.
