Yesterday Erin and I went down to San Antonio to celebrate the 40th birthday of my good friend Barry. Barry’s folks put on a huge shindig at their house with over 50 people there. Lots of food, music, fun, and Erin even got some quality dog time with their champion poodle (really!).
After the party the four of us (including Barry’s wife Catherine) retired to their house for the night. Barry graciously opened up a bottle of 40 year old port that was made the year he was born. It’s always been a List item for me to drink a wine that is older than me, but the more time that goes by, the less opportunity there is. Older wines can get pricey! Barry, however, poured freely and we were able to enjoy this incredibly smooth, complex, and wonderful drink.
A great time with great friends. Thanks, guys.
