A Special Evening at the Plumed Horse

0

Saturday night, November 22, 2014, Chef’s Table Room at the Plumed Horse, with an awesome lineup of wines provided by Charlie Weekes, for the benefit of our ‘research’:

  • 2004 Spottswoode Cabernet
  • 2005 Scarecrow Cabernet
  • 2006 Schrader To Kalon Cabernet
  • 2006, Screaming Eagle, Second Flight Cabernet
  • 2006 Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet

Current retail value of the wines, around $1700…

Weekes Tasting #2

The small bites and the courses just kept coming, and as a group of eight, we kept tasting, the wine and the food.

.Weekes Tasting #3

Favorites, though the differences between the first wine and the fifth ever so slight, were Scarecrow and Shafer.

Weekes Tasting 1

The evening was a smashing success, with good friends, great food, and world class wines.  Doesn’t get much better than that.
