Waterbrook Columbia Valley Melage Noir 2007
Dessert were a Mini Burnt, Salted Caramel Ice Cream cones and Mini Raspberry Tart. I skipped the tart because I kept chasing the Spring Roll until we left. I did try the ice cream and the 'burn' was pretty dominant. It was only described as salted so I wonder if it were not intentionally meant to be so smoky. Still it was nice on its warm little cone similar taste and texture to a fortune cookie.
So I did not really get to see this place in 'real' action but from what I saw I would come back. The staff were super efficient and friendly. The wine staff were well trained and kept things moving and glasses restocked constantly. The place was bright yet warm. The location is right in the middle of the financial district which has a big gap for a nicer drinking hole that doesn't look and smell like a drinking hole.
