Most of you know by now that Kevin and I don’t see eye to eye on what our weekly wine tastings are called, but the tastings are Kevin’s purview, and I leave it to him to name them, regardless of the juvenile pleasure he takes in making me suffer. This week is one such week. With last week’s tasting being loaded with white wines appropriate to your Thanksgiving table, this week Kevin brings out some red, all of which is Zinfandel but none of which will outstrip your meal. Why he’s chosen to call it “Thanks’ZIN’ing” I can only assume is rooted in the joy he takes in causing me emotional anguish. On the plus side, the wines are tasty and I think you’ll likely enjoy them. The tasting, as per usual, is at 2:00 this Saturday, November 16. As usual, $12.50 plus tax and tip covers you but you’ll want to reserve a spot, which can’t be had by web or email, so call us at 326-9363 and we’ll gladly make a space for you until all our spaces are gone. We hope you can make it.
