CABs of Distinction Walk Around Tasting

Terry tasting an Opolo Cab

Yesterday Kathy and I attended a walk around tasting of Bordeaux varietal wines, mostly Cabernet Sauvignon. This was a session in the Paso Robles Cab Collective’s event called CABs of Distinction. Taking the advice of New York Times wine writer Eric Asimov, I wrote haikus for several of the wines rather than traditional wine notes.

Opolo winery haiku:
Ruby Opolo
Very fruity soft tannins
A kiss from the vine

Parrish Family winery haiku:

Black fruited Petite Verdot
Bold kissing tannins 

Rotta Winery haiku:

Cabernet Franc black fruited
Bold luscious tannins
