January Virtual Tasting and Congratulations to Sean Sullivan

Washington Wine Report (Sean Sullivan) hosts the monthly virtual tastings.

The January Virtual Tasting wine is the Stonecap 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley. This wine retails for $8 and is widely available. The tasting will take place on Wednesday January 30th from 7-8pm Pacific. What you need to do to participate is:

1. Buy this month’s wine from a local retailer or direct from the winery.

2. Have a twitter account.

3. Tweet your comments about the wine on Twitter between 7 and 8pm Pacific on the specified date using the hashtag #stonecap. For those on Twitter, follow @wawinereport.

I began attending these virtual tastings last year. Truly a lot of fun and another way to connect with like minded souls. Good sensory and palate exercise too. For my tweets, follow @wild4wawine.
