Very nice way to end the meal
I appreciated that the restaurant offered tasting (1/2 glass) servings as it allowed us to try wines that we might not have otherwise wanted to risk trying. On the other hand, not all of our experiments were successful as you can see above.
Corrections & comments welcome.
