Rheingau and California Cabernet from the (mostly) 1970s - January 13, 2010 - Hosts: Gerry & Ben

This legendary tasting was known more for the weather and Ben's gracious hosting at his residence, and less for the wines. Well, the German wines were wonderful, but the 1970s California Cab did not, well, age gracefully. Fortunately Ben saved the cab tasting with 3 wines from his cellar.
