A note on the placemats. My preference would have been a little lighter and simpler, but
By Skype IM, DRT wrote:! tasting in London tomorrow evening !. Please make your finest ! blind tasting one-page placemat using as many new features as possible.
All of which led to the discovery of an unanticipated interaction of Rays and SideBySideGlassesTastingNotes. So, in manner sanctified by much usage since the dawn of the computer age, it has been added to the manual and labelled a ‘feature’.

I wish I could think of something profound to say. But I can't.

GM86=Remarkably (suspiciously?) dark.

This was the wine we hoovered up all remaining stocks of after last years Graham's vs Malvedos tasting, it being the surprise of the night then. Has anything changed?
