The Taste of Style

Posted by The Wine Whore |

Wine Whore Review:



The Wine Whore indulged at another excellent wine tasting at New Tampa WineStyles hosted by the informative, fun, and witty Troy.

The welcoming staff from WineStyles presented six intriguing selections as well as some tasty hors d'oeuvres to assist with cleansing the palate. As always, the wine was accompanied by a range of knowledge appealing to wine connoisseurs and those new to the world of wine alike.

The tasting flight for the evening consisted of generous (and often multiple) pours of the following wines:

Lange Oregon Pinot Noir 2007
Foxtail California Red Table Wine
Crisp Sauvignon Blanc
Klostor Pinot Grigio Germany 2007
14 Hands Washington Chardonnay 2006
Nepenthe Tryst South Australia Cabernet Sauvignon Tempranillo/Zinfandel 2006


At the end of the night I was intrigued by the balance of the South Australian blend from Nepenthe. I made a date for a Tryst of my own as I snatched up a bottle of this stimulating blend. With its complex blend of aroma and finish, this affair was impossible to forget.

Be sure to find me meeting with wine lovers again next week at New Tampa WineStyles.

I really need to find one of those in my area. (weekly wine tastings) We used to have a restaurant that offered different flights monthly and it was so much fun to try the different wines. I need to find more of that.

Visited a Wine Styles store in Madison, WI about 2 weeks ago. Some nice wines even tho a small collection, and they had a promo of 6 bottles for $60. Haven't had any of them yet but hope to soon. I love them red, big and bold mostly but also more mellow so anxious to see what we brought home.

These are a lot of fun! Always a 'Wine Whore' favorite!

Thank you both for the great comments!

Have never been to a wine tasting event like that.
But it does give me a great idea for my son, who recently opened a restaurant/dance club. I'll see him this week and suggest that I, with a few friends in the wine business have an event at his place. He can use that type of publicity, and I can get the chose the wines (I hope).

I'd love to hear which wines you choose and see pictures of that event!
