PCMS Enjoys Tasting of Washington Wines

PCMS Members and their guests gathered together this evening of May 2, 2018 at the Rooftop Terrace and Ballroom of the Landmark Convention Center in Tacoma for a wine tasting led by Paul Gregutt of Wine Enthusiast magazine, considered the preeminent expert about Pacific Northwest wines.  Paul returned to Pierce County two years after his initial wine tasting for PCMS in 2016. 

Attendees were guided through three flights of Washington wines noted for their high quality and high value--a flight of three Rieslings, a fight of three red blends and Cabernets, and a flight of three Syrah wines that Washington is gaining increased attention over including having a Washington Syrah named #2 wine in the entire world last year by Wine Spectator.  

Food that accompanied the wines included a fruit platter with yogurt, a cheese platter with crackers, warm crab and artichoke dip with crostini, spinach and feta triangles, and petite shrimp quiches.

After the rains of winter as well as the ongoing stress of the profession, tonight's wine event provided the perfect opportunity for physicians and PAs of our community to come together as colleagues who are also neighbors to put everything aside for a few hours of relaxation, visiting, and education.  

Those attending were treated to a perfect sunset off of Mount Rainier and the bay out on the terrace as the event concluded.
