EVENT DESCRIPTION
______
Cabernet Franc seems to be breaking out.... As I travel from Santa Barbara to Napa Valley, I'm finding top producers making an isolation or blend of Cabernet Franc. Merlot seems to be making a comeback, Duckhorn Merlot was the #1 wine in the world in 2017 via the Wine Spectator and the value prosition is very strong. Cabernet holds the hearts and minds and the pocket books. Come and blind taste from a very compelling list of top producers! This class comes with a petite cheese plate and is hosted by Ian Blackburn, winemaker, wine host, wine instructor.  Our pouring policy of one bottle per guest will be in place for this program.
