This bottle was consumed on Aug 3rd, 2020. The dinner was steak with the usual fixings. Parents, Kat and Tom, Maureen, ET and I. The Shiraz Sauvignon mix was excellent with our meal and definitely a 90+ wine...thoroughly enjoyed on a thoroughly enjoyable day!

Finally uncorked on Father's Day 2020 (June 21st). Kat and Tom over for late afternoon BBQ of steaks, baked potatoes, asparagus, caesar salad, rolls and cheese...and ET's rhubarb, apple, strawberry crumble for dessert. And the big surprise - an announcement of TNG!!!!! The Zin was a great hit for ET, Tom, Maureen, and I (Kat practicing abstinence). Like good troopers we downed the 1.5 l bottle. Aged well, and definitely deserving the 91 score I gave it.

Lasagna dinner with Fr Larry and the McSheffrey's. I enjoyed the wine although in the swirl of the evening it was difficult to really appreciate; hence the 90 rating.

Uncorked at the year end Men's Golf dinner on Nov 2nd. Not a bad bottle of Cab Sav but hard to value given the setting. Enjoyed with the stuffed pork tenderloin. Oh well...
