WBM contributing editor and winemaker Lance Cutler will lead a special Comparative Tasting of Red Blends at WiVi Central Coast featuring wines from Washington state, Napa Valley and Paso Robles.
When choosing wines from each of the three regions, Lance said he looked for these qualities: first, someone who represented an important iconic wine for the area and the variety; second, a modern, hotshot kind of person doing really well; and third, someone very solid and consistent.
Lance's inconic choice from Napa Valley is Cain Vineyard & Winery. The winemaker is Chris Howell; the wine, Cain Vineyard & Winery 2007 Cain Five.
Three winemakers from Paso Robles will be on the panel. For more information and to register, please go here.
