We know what they taste like: Cabernet Sauvignon is easily identifiable, as is Sauvignon Blanc, and Grenache and other Rhone varietals. But the fact is, while a grape has a certain typicity, the nature vs. nurture conundrum exists not just in people, but in wine as well. This week, we’ll discover what’s notable in the profiles of Sauvignon Blanc from Chablis (did you even know there was such a thing?) or Cab from Chile’s Central Valley, and a couple of other wines as well.
By now, you know how this works: you can join us here in person in the private dining room this Saturday, August 20, at 2:00 pm, or you can come collect your samples and taste from home or anywhere else you choose where there’s a WiFi signal, if you prefer. As usual, $15 will get you tastes and more information than you can shake a stick at.
THE TASTING BEGINS ON ZOOM AT 2:00 PM ON SATURDAY, august 20. THE ZOOM MEETING NUMBER FOR THE TASTING IS 833 0034 2312 and the passcode is 578374.
