Tampa Wine Shenanigans
For those of you who don’t know, I’m currently training to be a Wine Manager at one of the Total Wine locations in Charlotte, NC. Training is happening in Tampa, FL, and I’m there for a total of four weeks with three other trainees. One night after work, we decided to each bring a bottle of wine that we were curious about, and we opened them up, ordered a pizza, and tasted through our themeless flight.
Here’s a collection of my tweet-length reviews from that night:
2007 Edgewood Cabernet Sauvignon - $18
blackberry, cassis, sweet cigar smoke, touch of earth
2005 Accordini Amarone Classico - $50
baguette crust, black peppercorns, dried cherry
2009 Château Arnauton Fronsac - $25
strawberry Twizzlers, silt, cherry brandy
2008 Hugh Hamilton Jekyll & Hyde Shiraz/Viognier - $40
blueberry central, dense velvet, grape Blowpop
The Amarone & the Shiraz were probably my favorites, but every single one of those bottles was super tasty.
