Bill was kind enough to host following the completion of his deck, and he invited along his friends Marvin and Melodie. Unfortunately, Beth was slaving away while we partied. We called this one "Baller Night" in honor of Ashley, and the mission was for everyone to bring a top-tier offering. In general, this seemed to work, as we posted many more hits than misses.
This and dessert wines were the original focus of the event. All good wines, although the Pahlmeyer was perhaps a little questionable for the purchase price. The Oreno was a surprise as both the dry Wine of the Night, and also a relative QPR.
Only top-tier wines to finish things out. Wow.
It was a pleasure to meet Marvin and Melodie, and I hope we haven't scared them away. It would be great to have them at future NC Cindy events (whenever we can manage to get them scheduled). Thanks to Bill for hosting, and to JohnR for breaking out the incredible pair of Sauternes.
