Ok, we’ve definitely assembled a great group of tasters for our Jimsomare “Virtual Vertical,” now it’s time to set a day. I’ve had one person specifically suggest one so far, so I’ll start there; how does everyone feel about July5th? I don’t want to set a specific time, because if everyone participates who has expressed interest, we’ll have tasters from the East Coast, from Japan, and from Australia! And of course the time changes would then be problematic. So, we’re just going to set the day. July 5th anyone?
Here’s a couple other symbolic ideas:
–Since the 2007 vintage of Jimsomare has 14.7 alcohol, we could taste on 7.14? (July 14th)
–Since the acreage at Jimsomare is 6.25 acres, we could taste on 6.25? (June 25th)
–Since there were only 17 barrels produced of the 2007 Jimsomare, we could taste on the 17th of any month?
–Since Robert Parker once wrote, “One of the greatest old Zinfandels I ever tasted was the 1970 Jimsomare,” and since the 1970 Jimsomare was bottle in ’73, we could taste on 7.3? (July 3rd)
Ok tasters, pick a date, any date, I’m getting thirsty!
And if you don’t remember the original invitation and description of the Jimsomare “Virtual Vertical”, or if you’re still on the fence about deciding to participate, here is the original post:
