Impromptu Blind Tempranillo Tasting at Enoteca Tasting room in Ashland

Many good things seem to start on the golf course and today was no exception.  After a nice round of golf in the morning, the OWG crew was in Ashland for lunch at the Black Sheep pub.  Someone mentioned that we should go by Enoteca and procure a fine bottle of EdenVale Rosso Rubino, always a OWG favorite.

 

We walked into Enoteca and for $10 they were having a six producer Tempranillo flight.  We asked if they would do it blind for use, so we didnít know the order and Lynda Morrison, (of the Band Mercy), and Misty Santos set us up.  Tasting detailed data for scoring is at this link: Scoring Data
