I do love a blind tasting. In 1976, in a Paris wine tasting ever-after deemed The Judgment of Paris, which pitted Old-World wines against New-World (Napa was yet little-known), California cabernets outdid Bordeaux reds; California’s chardonnays out-competed France’s as well, shocking the wine world.
You can see what happens.
Lost Oaks, based in Burleson, has been winning awards with varietals that are distinctly suited to Texas’ climate—Viognier and Tempranillo among others.
For $15, you can taste all 8 wines (4 Lost Oaks, 4 global). The panel of judges reads like a small who’s who of Cedars artisanry. And Lost Oaks founder and winemaker Gene Estes will be in attendance.
