4/10/13-The Wednesday Knitters was hosted by Gary Rose and Laura Laskowski who provided a delicious dinner consisting of an extensive Taco Bar. The brown bag wine was undoubtedly one of the very best aged wines we have sampled. Most everyone remarked as to its fruitiness. The 1984 was the very first wine released from the Meekers winery.
4/4/13-The two brown bag wines for the night at the Thursday Lakeforest wine tasting were in celebration of Raj’s 40th birthday. Both wines had aged graciously and exhibited good softened berry fruit. The Latour second label Bordeaux was particularly enjoyable.
3/28/13-The brown bag wine sampled at the Thursday wine tasting at the Folsom Lakeforest wine store was an enjoyable Chalone Pinot Noir. Much like the previously consumed 1980 Clos du Val Pinot which had held up quite well, the Chalone was still an enjoyable wine. The participants’ guesses however were all over the map, including Grenache, Rhone, Petite Sirah and others.
