BLENDING AND GETTING BLENDED IN LAS VEGAS – Room 701, Marriott Grand Chateau, Las Vegas, NV (9/23/2011)

Five CTers gathered together in Las Vegas for three nights of fun in Sin City. Friday afternoon we gathered together for blending trials with smigdiggler of Dacalier to do some blending trials (I apologize smig if I shouldn’t have said anything!). After finishing the trials (my personal favorite was the 50% Inkgrade, 40% Black Sears and 10% Coombsville closely followed by the 50%/50% Black Sears/Coombsville) we shared four bottles from our overflowing stash of wines before dinner that evening.
