Amarone Tasting

Our wine tasting group also known as 'winers' is having a wine tasting this week. It is almost always the third Thursday of the month. Our group has been meeting since 1996 and originally started as a group of co-workers who wanted to know what to serve at Thanksgiving. Our group has expanded and the co-workers have dispersed due to layoffs but wine has kept us together. It has been a great group and we publish our tastings.

This month we are tasting Amarone and Ripasso. It is a group purchase and I'm responsible for the selections. I have been studying Dean's Amarone notes from Slow Traveler and SlowTalk messages on Valpolicella . I've been cruising the wine stores in downtown Seattle. I picked up an Allegrini Amorone at Pike and Western Wines and looking for others for the group to taste. I've gotten some help from J but it is still a daunting task. Well see what I end up with on Thurs.

On the dinner plate: Shrimp Quesidilla
In the wine glass: Kim Crawford Dry Riesling

On the nightstand: In the Skin of a Lion by Michael Ondaatje
