Seattle Uncorked is hosting The Cabernet Classic next Wednesday, October 28 from 6:30pm to 9pm at the Shilshole Bay Beach Club, 6413 Seaview Ave NW in Seattle (next to Ray’s Boathouse for those of you familiar with the area).
Kori and I are going to be there, and we hope that you will join us. It should be a great event for a good cause, and hopefully, we’ll get to taste some of the great new 2007’s that have just been released.
The Cabernet Classic is a fundraiser for CoCA, the Center on Contemporary Art, which will be showing paintings by Haris Purnomo of Jakarta, Indonesia. As you might expect, The Cabernet Classic will feature Cabernets (both Cabs and Cab-based blends) from thirty-four wineries, most of them from Washington State. I’m excited because it will be an opportunity to taste wines from some promising newcomers as well as some great veterans of the Washington wine scene. If you like Cabernet, you won’t want to miss this event.
Participating Wineries, according to Seattle Uncorked:
Big Smooth/Big Daddy
Brian Carter Cellars
Chatter Creek Winery
Jones of Washington
Nota Bene Cellars
Otis Kenyon Wine
Silver Lake Winery
Vin du Lac
Looking forward to seeing you next Wednesday.
