Wine and Cheese Afternoon - Tuesday 16 April

Fourteen members attended the Wine and Cheese group at Rob Adams. We sampled three Pinot white wines and three Cabernet Sauvignon wines., along with a variety of cheeses and crackers. (Note: White Pinot Noir is richer than many white wines because it's made with red wine grapes. It has flavors of baked apple and pear, with zesty notes of honey, orange and ginger. Depending on how it's made, the color can range from a pale white gold to a deep saffron yellow)
