Well, the votes have been cast, and the winners have been determined. In dividing the tasting in half, with 5 wines from both store “teams” – Covington and Fort Thomas – here is the list of wines tasted in order from 1 through 10:
(1) Star Lane Cabernet Sauvignon 2005, Santa Ynez Valley. Selected by Tom, our Covington store manager. $39.99/bottle. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
Thanks to the voters – 214 votes were casts – we have determined the winners for each store and the overall top wine. What is up for grabs is more bragging rights for the staff than anything – this tasting is more about putting a lineup of really kick ass wines together for the enjoyment of our customers than anything else.
