Blind Pinot Noir Battle 2015
October 26, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education LLC presents a battle of epic proportions
The Blind Pinot Noir Battle 2105
Which wine region will take home the trophy?
It’s back! One of our most popular formats, this time with Pinot Noir in the spotlight! We’ll begin the night with a comprehensive education on Pinot Noir, from grape to glass, and learn why it’s so revered around the world. Then we’ll discuss the idea of ‘typicity’ has how we each bring our own experiences to the table when trying to determine what quality wine is all about.
Then the tasting! And this year I have a FANTASTIC line up that will blow you away.
We’ll do two flights of four wines each. Each flight will have a top quality Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley, Santa Barbara County, Oregon, and of course Burgundy (generally considered the ‘big four’ when it comes to Pinot Noir). Examining each wine and ranking the wines individually will be followed by tallying the scores and group discussion.
Over the course of two flights, we will total the regional scores and crown a winner!
If you are at all into Pinot Noir, this will be one of the highlights of the year for you, guaranteed!
