February Wine Friday: Anywhere But Here — Non-California U.S. Wines

So it turned out that finding “out of state” wine
was a challenge for everyone.  Of course the majority of wines were
from Oregon and Washington who are making some good Pinot Noir for
sure.  But I have to say how I was really impressed with the New York
Finger-Lakes Riesling.  I guess I need to apologize for the
Pennsylvania red wine that basically tasted like Martinelli grape juice
— who knew?!

The food was great as always and we must have had 30 people this month!  Thanks for the great time and see you again next month.
