San Francisco, California USA
Tasted Tuesday, September 27, 2005 by PaulH with 1,003 views
Adam and Alex were visiting the Bay Area from England. Christine Huang got together 10 of the usual suspects and thirteen of us enjoyed a terrific meal and tasting at Zuppa.
Sparking wine (from Italy - because we were in an Italian restaurant), and an interesting bottle of white (a rousanne/viognier blend).
Adam and Alex brought along a wine from across the pond to see how smart us colonials were. Not too smart.
We started with a big flight of pinot noir from SLH and north.
Another well-aged treat from Alex and Adam.
This was a great flight of some well-aged CA Cabernet Sauvignons.
Another top notch flight - this time with California's take on Rhone varietals.
This was a great dinner, lasting from about 6:30 until close to 11:00 p.m. Everyone seemed to have a great time (I know I did); and they all got home safe, too! (even though one member of the group -who shall remain nameless- stayed behind and drank Tequila with one of Zuppa's owners).
