Myriad Virtual Zoom Tasting with Mike Smith--Friday, April 24th @ 5PM PT / 8PM ET

#1 Post by Frank Murray III »

Funny how opportunity drops. I got a request today as to whether we would do an event for Mike Smith and Myriad. I then spoke to Leah Smith, and we knocked around the idea, and voila, another Zoom tasting is born.

I've not known Leah for long, but was fortunately introduced to her by fellow Berserker, Brian Tuite. I know their wines are very geeked about here on Wine Berserkers and I also know that several of you have wanted to see a representation for Cab so it's a win all-around to deliver this event to the WB community.

Based on scheduling, it makes sense to offer two dates (Tuesday 4/21 or Friday 4/24), either are viable but you need to vote for one if you have a preference and we will go with the date selected. Same time as the other events, using 5PM PT / 8PM ET.

Ok, vote away and let's have another fun Zoom event.[thumbs-up.gif]
----------------------------------------------

TO BE PART OF THE EVENT, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING. THANK YOU.

Date/Time: Friday, April 24th @ 5PM PT / 8PM ET

Theme: If you own Myriad, open one. Or, you can choose to open another Mike Smith project if you would like but our primary focus will be on Myriad.

How To Connect: To get the Zoom link to connect to the event, send a private message to Frank Murray III. I will then send you the link in a private reply. Once you receive the link, please do NOT forward it.

We'll be muting everyone's audio so we can eliminate background noise. You'll also be optioned to turn on your camera if you like...we want to connect and have some fun and fellowship with Mike (and possibly Leah) so video is encouraged.

Wow.
Thank you.
They seem like really nice people and I know they made major contributions to Falltacular.
Plus, I have many bottles of wine with the name "Myriad" in my cellar.
Looking forward to this wine.

I haven't done any of these Winemaker Zooms yet. How do they work. Do they pick specific bottles to taste with us or is it more of a general overview of their cuvees/winemaking/vineyards/etc?

Big Mike Smith fan. This will be great.

Jordan, it's the latter. It's meant to be fellowship and also time for people to rally around the winery's craft, to talk about the wines broadly and meet the winemaker, which for some they've not had the chance before. For Rivers-Marie, who makes several varietals, we saw Pinot, Chard and Cab open. Glad you can join.

5pm is rough for a Friday, I’m usually just getting in the door from my work day. With that said I’ll cut my day short for Mikey and Leah! flirtysmile

For me Fri works and Tues doesn't; either way, thanks for organizing Frank, and thanks to Mike and Leah for participating!

Friday looks to be the winner. I'll leave this up another 24 hours or so and then we will set the day and generate the Zoom link.

Thanks for adding your poll vote.

Ok, so we have just shy of 50 votes, with 2/3rds of them being for Friday so that will be the day this week for the event.

I will update post #1 with the instructions on how to participate.

Thank you everyone for supporting our Zoom efforts to feature cool people, and to find ways for us all to come together.

I tasted with Mike in Napa about 8 or so years ago. Shared wine in NY during a SOHO tasting event, and drank with Mike and Leah at North Square at a Mike Pobega event. I’m looking forward to seeing them again.

Tough call, the ‘12 Quivet Las Madres last year was stellar. I’ve had both and they both speak to place.

2017 Three Twins Cab for me. A thank you to Leah for sending me the care package so I can immerse myself with all of you on Friday in the moment.

By the way, you all hammered me with PMs in the past few hours. Well done. We've got to be getting close to 40 people now.

Keep PMing me if you want to join this Friday.

I can tell you that I first met Mike and Leah at Nicholson Ranch when we were tasting the 2006 Myriad vintage. Along with Kelly Peterson and Ray Holmes you will not meet nicer, more genuine people in the wine industry. At times like these we support those quality vintners.

See you Friday.

Any chance this will be recorded like the Rivers-Marie? I have a prior Zoom engagement set up by the wife but would love to watch Mike discuss Myriad especially w/the 2018 releases today.
