EVENT DESCRIPTION
______
Cabernet Franc seems to be breaking out! As we travel from Santa Barbara to Napa Valley, we are finding top producers making an isolation or blend of Cabernet Franc. Even 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 proposition is very strong! Cabernet holds the hearts, minds and the pocket books. Come and blind taste up to 21 wines, 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.  Limited to 20 guests.
