Adding my sincere condolences to you, Shannow. Not long ago I was cleaning out my basement and found a forgotten 8 year old bottle of "two buck Chuck" Shiraz (US folks will recognize this very inexpensive wine label). I was going to just pour it down the sink, but in the end decided that there would be no harm in trying it. To my surprise it was, what I would describe as, "delicious". On my next trip I told this story to some wine shelf stockers at "Trader Joe's" where the wine was purchased, and they thought it was as funny as I did. Very happy that you saw the perfect occasion to enjoy, and share with your Dad, his gift of wine.
