Things have been kind of slow since we've moved to Santa Rosa. Late last year we threw a party. I wasn't convinced that our friends would drive two hours to see us, but they did. This year we decided to try a traditional blind tasting.
Last year we joined the BV wine club and acquired a vertical of Georges De Latour. I was thinking we should taste that and the clones that it's made of, but I threw together a couple of other options.
Option 1: Georges De Latour Cab Tasting
- 2017 Georges De Latour
- 2018 Georges De Latour
- 2019 Georges De Latour
- 2018 Clone 6
- 2018 Clone 4
- 2018 Clone 169
Option 2: Cab Tasting
- 2018 Ehret, Hillside Reserve
- 2018 Louis M. Martini, Lot 1
- 2018 Mayacamas
- 2016 Passalacqua, Block 18 & 19
- 2018 Stag's Leap, Cask 23
- 2018 Trujillo, Gary Morisoli
Option 3: Everyone bring a cab
