UPDATE: Check out my post here for the results of the tasting.
From the CIA website:
This yearâ€™s event will focus on Pinot Noir, one of the worldâ€™s most prized and difficult varietals. Mr. Parker has chosen a dozen examples of Pinot Noir and red Burgundy, which he will share in a blind tasting with the participants.
â€œPinot Noir is widely considered a most elusive, fascinating, and sensual red grape,â€? says Karen MacNeil, chair of professional wine studies at the CIA at Greystone. â€œRobert Parker, Jr. is renowned for his wine knowledge and incredible palate. Put the two together and you have the makings of a historic tasting that no serious wine lover will want to miss.â€?
The date is October 26th. 100 seats available. Proceeds go to charity.
Sounds like good times to me. Count me in.
