Yesterday we held a Release Party for Abrazo, the wine we designed as a fund raiser for the Cascades Humane Society.
The weather was gorgeous -- we figured we'd earned it after the Raspberry Festival.
We weren't sure what to expect as far as turnout, but it was a very nice party. Not crazy busy, just a nice turnout.
The best turnout was by the dogs. I'd estimate that we saw at least two dozen yesterday!
Abrazo was designed to fit into a hole in the tasting list. We really needed a red wine that fit between the dry reds and Staccato, a semi-sweet red blend. It's perfect, just slightly off dry (basically, not perfectly dry).It's a hearty red with a velvety mouth feel. I think it'll be a hit.
