Sean Minor Pinot Noir on tap Windsor Bar Phoenix

Well…After a wonderful Creative Connect  get ” togather” My friend Gene and I went to the ” Windsor ” bar and restaurant across the street. Warm interior, and  inviting ….until we got a spot at the bar..Asked for a wine list…and the pretentious, condescending twirp of a bartender began  to tell me that they only had wines from a 5 gallon mini keg . and that this was the way of the future…” ya know the waste of corkage in wine ? it’s 10 percent! ” Well I stated does that mean we won’t be seeing any French wines here in the future because they are only available in bottles ?? He shrugged,,,, So I ordered the Sean Minor Pinot Noir…and said: ..I’ve never heard of this wine. The cowboy shirted twirp got ruffled and replied:” You’ve NEVER heard of Sean Minor????? I’ve worked at 2 other resorts and we had this wine there…”  Well mr. bartender ..I guess I don’t drink wine at resorts enough…….Then I was surprised by the pricing..  $11. a glass for an average pour ?…..Jeez…. if you are only selling wine from a ” Keg” and…saving bottles, corks , foil, labels, etc. Why is this costing so much ? I understand the green thing..but… the savings??  I thought I would be saving some green with this approach!! So..I looked it up..The bottle wine online costs about $13. a bottle..well………….so there’s a hefty profit going on here!!! Let’s talk about the wine ..It was good  in fact very good..much better than  I expected with a  nice oak nose and a mixed berry palate..a little earth  and well rounded finish… I’m not crazy about coming back to the Windsor after this experience..but I  will try one of Sean Minors wine in a bottle next time.
