On Line Wine Tasting Feb 11th.

Rick Bakas of St Supery winery has organized a virtual wine tasting of California Cabernets for Thursday February 11th. Information and registration details can be found here:

California Cabernet Sauvignon Event

The event first came to my attention when Dave Tong wrote a blog about it last week and then a follow up blog this week. Dave was upset that the Santa Clara Valley AVA was not listed or covered at all in the event. He asked that local wineries that make Santa Clara Valley AVA wines participate in an effort to promote the AVA.

We registered this morning and will participate on the 11th. I don't twitter, so our update will be here on our blog and on Facebook. You can participate with any California wine, but I'd encourage as many people as possible to open one of our Uvas Creek Cabernet Sauvignon's. That wine is a Santa Clara Valley AVA wine.

Personally I'd rather share the wine and taste with others. If there is significant interest locally (that means more than Dave and I), I'd suggest we gather at a local spot and I'll provide a vertical of our Uvas Creek Cabernet to sample.

Sounds like a plan. I can bring a couple of old Sycamore Creeks; I have 1978 and 1979. The 78 has been drinking amazingly well; I haven't tried the 79. Maybe some of the other local wineries will join us.
