Bon jour, Mes Petits Feastlings.
In spite of the fact that all of this week’s wines hail from the US, Kevin’s reasoning is that these Pinot Noirs very much approach a Burgundian style, and we all know that his first order of business in constructing a tasting is to come up with a suitable pun for its title (I won’t even tell you the title of next week’s tasting yet, as it sets my teeth on edge.) In any case, while Kevin lives for the title of the tasting, I know you generally come for the wine, and these are exceptionally tasty Pinots, across the board. Regrettably, Pinot Noir production has a bit more of a price tag on it than that of other varietals, so this tasting will be twenty dollars plus tax and tip rather than the customary ten, but well worth it.
We have a private event happening on tasting day, so seating will be more limited than usual; therefore, if you plan on joining us, it behooves you to call sooner than later. Web and email reservations won’t guarantee you a seat, so call us 326-9363 if you plan on joining us at your earliest convenience.
