Here, walking among us every day, there are people who openly crave a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. They act perfectly natural most of the time, but then someone brings up the topic of red wine, and they immediately search for a glass and start a mantra of "Cabernet, must have some". We like these people. We cater to these people. So tonight, if you are some of those people, you can seek refuge and satisfaction with eight incredible Cabernets and Cabernet Blends that we will sympathetically pour to quench your craving.

"A River Runs Through It" Wine Tasting
Most of the great wine regions in the world have rivers running through them. Beyond providing postcard-worthy backdrops, these curvaceous flows moderate severe climates across Europe and the New World, which is important because most wine regions exist in harsh, or marginalized areas. From Germany’s chilly Mosel Valley to the scorching Ribera del Duero in central Spain, vines thrive thanks to the influence of major rivers. Tonight we will talk, taste and toast the wonderful effects of these waters on many prestigious wines. Reservations to join our “class in the glass” are appreciated and can be made by calling (813) 879-2931.
