Every wine, every damn one would have made a memorable evening. For them all to show this well in such august company, along with a repast of this caliber was yet one more memorable evening with a group of gentlemen who I am proud to call my friends. A couple of pictures are attached. I have more, but can't figure out how to post or convert the &%$^ ing HEIC images from my &$#% ing iPhone to a format that I can post here.
