Our Homage to #CabernetDay in Walla Walla

Yesterday was the Third Annual #CabernetDay that was celebrated all across the globe using social media such as Twitter and Facebook. Many wine lovers of this deep red grape, that was discovered during the 17th century in southern France, gathered in wine bars and shops, wineries, home parties, or even couch potatoes Twittered their love in front of the TV and take-out (Hey - Cab is a great pairing for the perfect hamburger).

The exciting thing for many of us in Walla Walla is this was our third Cabernet Day event where four of the same wineries have assembled together! Many thanks to Jaime from L'Ecole No. #41 for gathering other wild wine women from Walla Walla: Muriel from Otis Kenyon Wine, Vickie and Julie from Seven Hills Winery, and Shari from Woodward Canyon. As always, these four wineries brought in their finest Cabernet Sauvignons along with a few surprise library wines.

Special guest wines included Don Carlo Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Tero Estates Cabernet Sauvignon from Windrow Vineyards, and Renegade Wine Company Red

The big surprise of the evening was from Trey at Sleight of Hand Cellars as he brought a vertical of 2007, 2008, and 2009 Illusionist Red. In fact, the Sleight of Hand Cellars Illusionist Red - 2009 was one of the featured Cabernets listed in Wednesday's issue on CabernetDay in Forbes and of course, the wine is now sold out!

But hey - - let me quit rambling on about our Third Annual #CabernetDay and see for yourself!
