This month’s Virtual Tasting will be the 2008 Hedges CMS Red. This Cabernet, Merlot, and Syrah blend is widely available in retail and grocery stores and costs $12. The tasting will take place on Thursday February 25th from 7 to 9pm.

What you need to do to participate:

1. Buy this month’s wine from a local retailer or from the winery

2. Post your comments/tweets on Thursday February 25th between 7 and 9pm. Comments can be as long or short as you want (my personal favorite comment ever was “Blech!”). A good place to start is, did you like the wine or not? Not sure? Think about whether you would buy it again. For those of you on Twitter, I will be using the hashtag #wawine.
