Every year two of our Dallas wine tasting groups, the DAWGS and the Dallas 2nd Wednesday Group, combine for our Annual Burgers & Cabernets Wine Dinner. This event is always one of the largest attended events of the year. Our 5th rendition this year was no different with approximately 45 people in attendance. Naturally with that many wines and people to chat with I didn’t really bother to take notes on any of the wines tasted during the evening. I did however write notes on the two wines I contributed to the event in order to insure that I removed them from my CellarTracker inventory.
