Feb. Red Wine & Chocolate

We had a fabulous day at MaryAnn's house. There were 12 wines and as many appetizers- groan- All SO delicious! We're going to have to start a WWW Cookbook! Who wants to type the recipes? Maybe we could sell them to pay for our wine trip to Hawaii!!!

Just a minute while I unbutton my pants- oh-sorry.
For those of you unable to come today, we had a blind tasting. The # 1 winner was HARD ROW TO HOE, CABERNET FRANC 2006, the majority of the grapes were from the Riverbend Vineyard, Wahluke Slope. Here's what the Columbian said about it:
"This Cabernet Franc is a beautifully complex wine that has cherry, pipe tobacco, green peppercorns, strawberry, and cocoa flavors opening to a broad palate and firm tannins."
We also had fun reading the label- now we have to go to Lake Chelan to get the whole story on the label.
We also had some Barnard Griffin winners. If anyone wrote them down, please let me know the runners up.
