Seattle Tasting Group 'End of Year Dinner' #2 (Sammamish, WA, USA): The wine was a dessert unto itself. An impeccable fill had us quite excited by this one. Darkish in color, the nose was a party of orange marmalade, caramel, and nuts. The palate was nice but seemed to fall apart a bit too quickly with burned sugar notes that became more and more prominent with air. While it lasted it was intense and delicious, but it also suffered in comparison to a 1959 Guiraud I was able to taste 10 days earlier. Still, it was a fantastic wine, thanks Roy!
