Cheers to virtual wine tasting

June 14, 2013

Caymus 150x150

On Saturday, June 29th, it will be happening all over the country—in Charleston, Fort Worth, Spokane and Palm Beach Gardens, just to name of few of the select cities. The much-anticipated event is “Caymus Live!” a virtual wine tasting led by Chuck Wagner, founder of Napa Valley’s esteemed Caymus Vineyards. Wagner will be on camera in his family-owned California winery, regaling the characteristics of his distinct Caymus wines and others produced in his son’s winery. Total Wine & More in Palm Beach Gardens (11221 Legacy Avenue, 561-622-7340) is the closest place in Palm Beach County to attend the event. For just $20, you can sit in the store’s classroom and as Wagner waxes poetic about certain wines, you can taste the same vintage and see if you agree with his critiques. While the selection of wines may change, you can expect to sample a Conundrum white wine blend with aromas of tangerine, green apple and honeysuckle and numerous tropical fruit flavors. Another Wagner favorite is Belle Glos Las Alturas, a pinot noir with rich textural components. The palate is supple and layered with exotic spices and ripe plum and cherry flavors. You might also sample a top-notch Meiomi pinot noir that naturally pairs with pungent cheeses, lamb chops and even a pulled pork sandwich. Chuck’s son Joe is the winemaker for both of these pinot noirs. After the virtual tasting, you can purchase the featured Caymus, Belle Glos and Meiomi wines, from $20 to $40 per bottle.
