Ant, this is a terrific way to recap the festivities, as posting the specific wines in this way (with ratings) makes it a handy reference for future purchases! I agree a good time was had, and it was good seeing everyone!

My thoughts exactly JP. I would encourage everyone to post their own personal reviews of wines they've taste. This blog could become our own online wine cellar.

Also, I forgot to point out that by far Saulo (Spanish/blend) was by far the best bargain at $9.00 a bottle. You can't beat that.
