Wines from dinner.

Gunderloch Nackenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Spatlese 2003 - I never tire of this wine. Sweet and fresh with flavors of peach and apricot. Really nice with the scallops.

Pio Cesare Barbaresco Il Bricco 2000 - Very dark. Medium to full-bodied. Bitter chocolate, dried fruit, caramel. Very concentrated, young, Long finish. Very good potential here and really needs to be cellared another 5 years or so before trying again

Mission Hill Winery Late Harvest Riesling 2002 - From the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. Somewhere between auslese and beerenauslese level sweetness. Burnt sugar, orange marmalade. Good balance and long finish. Not a complex wine but enjoyable anyway.

Chocolate souffle for dessert paired with a fantastic Macallan 18 year old single malt. Best single malt I've ever had.

Here, here! I favor the 18 even over the Macallan 25. If I had to live with one single malt the 18 would be it even though I'd long for an islay malt from time to time.

Strongly agree, This wine is also an incredible value, for what you get. Here in Ontario, the LCBO is currently selling the 2004 for only $36 Canadian. A steal.

I am also quite proud of the fact that I still have a few 1994 Gunderloch Spatlese kicking around in my cellar.
