Is the world of the winerati about to change forever -- or will Cory and his friends lose their way, each other, and their beloved dog?Part adventure, part high-tech wine caper, part unabashed celebration of curiosity, Blind Tasting is a genre-bending ultra-contemporary novel about geeks who crave both science and love.
