Marche Bacchus Bastille Day Celebration









Happy Bastille Day !! I actually had to do a google search to see what exactly the celebration was all about ! A few members or Tex and Gigit's "wine crew " met at Marche Bacchus to join in the celebration. As usual, we had two blind wines. The first was pretty easy for us. The color and nose right way told me it was a German Resling. I did miss the Spatlese category I thought it was a Kabinett oh well !! Agate revealed it was a Joh Jos Christiffel Erben 2005 Spatlese Resling from Mosel-Saar-Ruwer. The second blind was a red and we did not do as well. Some thought it was a Syrah or Shiraz and others thought is was a Zinfandel. Agate came back and told us we were all wrong. We tried again and were split Merlot or Cabernet. It turns out it was a Opolo Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 from Paso Robles. The celebration featured a live band and three skydivers that jumped out of a helicopter into the lake . Viva Le France !
