I am the first to jokingly admit that my personal knowledge of wine more often than not limits me to two single tasting notes: "I like it" or "I don't like it." This handicap is perhaps what compels me to accept invitations to wine tasting events, so that I can not only enjoy carefully selected wines with thoughtful food pairings, but that I can also (hopefully) soak up a little bit more savvy from industry professionals.

Earlier this month the well-known steakhouse chain Morton's held a Malbec tasting at two of their area locations to showcase a selection of wines from 2006 through 2008 from the Mendoza and the Cafayate Valley in Argentina paired with signature items from Morton's menu. At Morton's in Burbank I joined the other wine enthusiasts in attendance to sample these pours and small bites and benefit from the knowledge of the experts on hand.
