11/14/05 – Pinot Noir

First of all, check out the jazzy new e-mail address. Vast improvement, in my opinion. This one really conveys our mission and purpose as an organization.

Tuesday night we meet at Christina’s house, and she’s chosen to make it exceedingly difficult for everyone to get there by living somewhere that’s apparently not very easy to find. We’ll have to do our best, I suppose, so to that end, here are the directions, straight from the horse’s mouth, the metaphorical horse in this case being Christina:

(address, phone number, blah blah blah)

Hope you guys don’t have any trouble. At the very least, now we can at least say we’ve all got Christina’s number.

Tomorrow night’s grape is Pinot Noir, the temperamental star of “Sideways” which is more prone to fluctuations in quality and genetic mutations than almost any other grape, yet which has the potential to produce some of the world’s most remarkably complex wines. The traditional red grape of France’s great Burgandy region, Pinot Noir is now planted all around the world — in the US it’s very popular in California and, increasingly, Oregon.

Bring a bottle of Pinot Noir (or a bottle of something random if your name is Sunil) and we’ll see you tomorrow night at 9:00.
