'Judgment of Washington' Wine Tasting

Post wine columnist Dave McIntyre invited three retailers and three sommeliers to join him in a blind tasting of a dozen white and a dozen red wines. All the judges knew was that McIntyre was imitating the famous 1976 Judgment of Paris by again pitting the United States against France. What they didn't know what that he was also slipping in five Virginia wines and one from Maryland. Could the local wines compete? Video by Joe Yonan, Edited by Ashley Barnas/The Washington Post
