    Thanks John, I was going to ask about that. Since we don't have entry fees who actually pays for the medals?

    The Forza. A Corvina blend that I affectionately named “Comfortably Numb.” Gold medal, Best in Show.

    Sadly, a limited edition kit for which I only have 7 or 8 bottles left.

    My entry fee:

    Maybe we should consider an entry fee of $5 or more (not for each wine but to enter in general, just to help defer the cost of medals and postage of the medals and score sheets).

    I'd wait for a while longer, or let it breathe for quite a bit of time. I think I overdid the dried elderberries in that one. A little tannic still.
