Theme: Callie Cutting Edge
As oenophiles know, California offers many more wine growing areas than Napa and Sonoma, and that there's a crop of new and edge-pushing winemakers emerging on a consistent basis. October's tasting features wines which are a little removed from the beaten Napa path, but each with its own story and style. You can sip the Cambridge & Sunset "Clippings" blend, the product of a winery started by two Aussie ex pats in Novato, California (located between Napa and the Pacific Ocean), which was created to celebrate the end of a day of yard work. Or try the rules breaking X Winery Big Gun Red, which boldly blends four different red grapes into one mighty wine.
Wines to be Tasted: Cambridge and Sunset "The Clippings" White Blend 2012; Formation Pinot Noir 2011; Zinsane Zinfandel 2012; Big Gun Red Blend 2012 Entertainment: Meredith Holliday
