Our fourth tasting probably has the best group of wine so far; many initial reaction from us were like, “they are all quite good!” In the end, we didn’t pick a clear winner; but there was one bottle that we unanimously rated last (not that it’s not any good) It is interesting to note that, bottle #2, #3, #4 all got 3 votes for first place.

Credit Where Credit is Due
First of all, thanks to everyone coming to this tasting on a Sunday evening; I was really the only one couldn’t make it in the afternoon. Second, thanks to Vincent W, for all 4 beautiful wine, and for cleaning our wine glasses (I wanted to help, but you got help from Naomi already) Third, thanks to Anson and his family, for having us over to their place for our tasting. Last but not least, thanks to Andrew for bringing us all food for dinner from First Markham.
