My wine tasting rating (0-10):  8

An Interesting Wine Tasting!
If it wasn't for the corked Jones Family and ridiculously overripe fruit in the Behrens & Hitchcock...
The Veritas Tokay went beautifully with the foie gras
The Pinot Noir flight was absolutely magnificent!
The Harlan Estate, even from a crappy vintage, was outstanding!!
