  1. Picked up 2 bottles at Freddies for $8.99 each. Got two just in case one is corked or I can't quite get a read on it after one. Safety in numbers.

    See you Thursday.

  2. Excellent! Glad to hear you will be joining us. Two bottles of a Grand Estates wine is never a bad thing to have on hand.

  3. I think I'll give it a try. This is a pretty accessible wine! I think I'll film it side by side with another Cab too. Can't wait to join you Sean. What will the hashtag be?


  4. Josh, glad to hear you'll be joining in. Generally I have thought that the GE series offers great value wines. With 2007 an exceptional vintage, I'm interested to see what this one looks like. Hashtag will be #virtualtasting.

  5. Looking forward to the virtual tasting tomorrow evening.

  6. @winecentury Glad you'll be making it.
