I'm offering up tytyger58's house for the next SoCal gathering. He has some aged Ridge zins he wants to taste/share so that's our focus. All other wines are, of course, welcomed (except aged white zin -- I will kick your ass out). tyger (realistically, his lovely wife) will handle the food. Depending on what it is, we may all need to bring a $5 bill, which I think we can all manage, especially since tyger is also providing the centerpieces for our tasting.

Host: tytyger58 and his lovely wife

Location: Sherman Oaks (easily accessable via the 405)

Theme: Aged zins + whatever

Date: March 30th

Time: 6pm

Attendees:

-tytyger58 +1 (Ridge zins)
-kylemittskus +1? (07 Hendry's mini-horizontal + Vranec [Macedonian wine for the Century Club])
-Sparky ('04-'07 Chase)
-cortot20 +1 (food)
-losthighwayz +1? (2006 Woodenhead Zin)
-loveladyelectric +1
-time2testit + RHWMBO
-rjquillin
-klezman (Ridge zins or...)
-molarche (I'm guessing something dessert-y )
-Sparky's nephew +1
-zTimothyBz +1

Maybes:

-ekeavney +1
-merbill
-Java (WHO?!?!)
-CoffeeMate
-joelsisk
-K00L

Regrets:

So, dates. January is no good for the hosts, plus it might as well be over. February quickly approaches. What doesn't work for anyone. I think,I think I'm good any Saturday for the next couple months.

Who?

Sounds like fun!
February is very tight for us. First 2 weekends I know are booked but I have to check with RHWMBO to be sure. Thanks for offering to do this one tytiger (and Mrs. tytiger)!

Feb 16th is bad for me. And obviously the 23rd is out.

March 2nd is out (NWIWC judge that weekend), as well as March 9th (Family Winemakers down in Del Mar).


Someone has to put WD's kids thru college, but why does it have to be me!

Any objections to March 23rd? Wives are definitely allowed. Generally, they're WAY better than us.

There's a small chance molarchae and I will be around March 23. That's the weekend before my birthday and we'll most likely be in the Bay Area.
Late Feb/early March is better. Otherwise after Passover (although during Passover would be fine so long as there's some passingly kosher-ish food).

In general, I'm only blacked out for the third Saturday of the month, each month.

Aged Zins? Will have to see what I can find in th cellar.

That's cool...but only necessary during Passover for my own particular set of observances And I wouldn't want you to go out of your way. I could easily bring matza and cheese, which would go well with wine.

Well, it is nice to have been missed.

March 23 works for us (for now). It just sounds so far away. Passover time would be more iffy for various reasons.

I can do either weekend in march. The 23rd has a potential conflict but depends on timing of the other event.

First or second weekend in March?

So long as molarchae agrees, the weekend of March 2 would work well. It's right before her birthday, but I'm pretty sure we will actually be in town.

Yes, we do. At least in theory. I'm waiting on the details and date for my nephew's first birthday party. It'll be either March 9 or 16, but up in the great white north. March 23 is currently slated for travel and the weekend after is Passover, but as mentioned before I'm fine with that...I'll just bring matza

Sure, sounds good to me. Matza, cheese and wine! Or matza, non-pork meat and wine! Either sounds great to me. I even just picked up some aged Ridge Geyserville since I no longer have any Pedroncelli Midnight Run remaining.

Outstanding, March 30th it is? I have a Ridge 81 Fiddletown, 95 Pagani Ranch and a 97 Geyserville. If you don't have any older Zins no problems there should be plenty of wine, bring any zin

We have more than enough room so everybody is welcome.

We will have to play it by ear, with it being the holiday week. Either way, we'd basically bring our own food with us if we make it (since I'm pretty strict that week). Sounds like it works for most everyone else though!

30th should be okay. And I'm tempted to bring a '04-'07 Chase Hayne Zin vertical.

You could do that and I could keep my 05. But then what would I bring... ?

Vinito de Finito since it's Late Harvest Zin, maybe.

No need to bring food Ron we will have plenty.

Hayne zin sounds great, I have had a PS from Hayne but no zin.
