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. This event has been SOLD OUT.
In our usual, weekly wine tastings, we are often sampling versions of the two most popular wines grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. But tonight we wanted to explore some lesser known, but very delicious grapes or grape blends that are also a delight to taste. Hence the title “Anything But Cabernet or Chardonnay”. Reservations to appreciate these alternate wines are appropriate and can be made by calling (813) 879-2931.
