Webster’s Dictionary defines an antidote as “anything counteracting something unpleasant.” Faced with the uncivility and mudslinging of political debates on television and inundated with political robo calls, Mike and Millie Aramanda discovered the perfect cure. They invited the Wine Stewards to enjoy an evening of Show and Tell Wine Tasting. Members were asked to present their favorite bottle of wine and give a short discourse on why it is their favorite. Relaxed and casual, munching on appetizers, members listened to the discourses and sipped the offerings. In such an atmosphere, it is amazing how good a glass of wine can taste. Varied were the wines. A Rivata Moscato D’Asti from the Piedmont area of Italy began this wine exploratory journey. It is estate-bottled and softly sparkling with peach, mango and honey flavors. This was followed by Toad Hollow Chardonnay from the Russian River area of California. It is an unoaked Chardonnay that is clean, crisp and features flavors of mango and melon. Radius Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State featured an interesting selection story. It was part of a cruise premium wine package. It is a medium-bodied, fruit-forward cab with flavors of black cherry and black current. It is not your typical cabernet and has cultivated a wide following. Gnarly Head Authentic Black from California was another colorful choice. It is a dark and inky big, robust Petite Syrah with black cherry, black licorice and vanilla. Show and Tell Robson style is definitely a wonderful, soothing antidote. Members departed relaxed and happy and full of good cheer.
