Attendees:  Dave L., Karen, Dan C., Darlene, Brad, Cathy, Dan M., Debby, A. David

My tasting rating (0-10):  8


Notes:  Another very nice evening.  My overall impressions of the wines were:  CA elegant.

84 Chabot was a clear favorite, but number two was all over the place.  Even the whites and port were in the picks.
