Friday Night Wine Tastings - 25 Oct 2013

Friday nights are wine nights for us; well sushi night too, but we can handle them both :)

 Yiannis line up tonight.

I hit Yiannis Wine Shop first. Yiannis was in the Norfolk store that night but I saw Tyler, Perry, and Liz was pouring.  Liz had a Cab called Carnivor from California that was very good. Dark fruit, inky--this stuff was almost black. Your teeth will be purple after a few glasses of this stuff.

The crowd started to grow at Yiannis and I was trying to keep my running around down, so it was off to Grape and Gourmet.  Le Chef Alex was working the table here. Gabe is usually around the shop but he was out that night. Kevin and Deb, the owners, are always in shop but Kevin was laid up in bed. My take home from here was the Poizin Zinfandel. Fruit forward, nice finish.

After we had out sushi we headed down to Norfolk to see Chayce's band, Long Division, at the NorVA.  Great set, really good sound in that place. Check them out:
