Join us on February 6, 2020 for a unique wine tasting experience led by Molloy’s in-house wine expert Mr. Jim Sheehan ’75. Participants will enjoy small bites and sample six different wines from the Pacific Northwest United States chosen by Jim. You will learn how to evaluate each wine based on appearance, taste, smell, and other defining characteristics. Here are few thoughts about the theme from Jim himself:
"Although the wines of the Pacific Northwest United States don't carry the immediate cache of those from California, there are many splendid wines from Oregon and Washington State, many of which are more affordable than their California cousins. The climate and terroir of a number of appelations in the Willamette Valley, Oregon, share strikingly close characteristics with those of Burgundy, the region which sports the most dynamic and expressive Pinot Noirs in the world. And in Washington, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and a diversity of red blends lead the way with quite a few stunning, unexpectedly expressive stars. Please join us for an exploration of six of these exciting wines." - Jim Sheehan
