Approach /WeeksEnd wine

b"sd
With in the wine world many of the phrases lend themselves so much to the rest of our world.
A personal favorite;approachable but will improve with age.
IWe also know that how we approach has a direct result on results.
To paraphrase a quote;The pleasant words of the wise man are heard over the loud words of the fool.
Have a good one; H

Soreq Judean Plains (Shfelat Yehuda) Merlot 2008 complementing pan fried entrecote with roasted onion and zucchini slices.

Merlot from the Judean Hills tends to be bolder than its cousins from other parts of in Israel. The Soreq Merlot is from the Judean Plains, but it too has a dominant character, and it stood up quite nicely to the steaks.

Harry, sadly in recent years it does not seem so much that "The pleasant words of the wise man are heard over the loud words of the fool." Rationality seems to have gone out of the window altogether in favor of political correctness, however misguided. Let's hope that will change sometime soon.

Hi Harry,

This week I went with another of Hagafen's Cabernet Franc, the 2007 vintage. With age came a dried floral quality, but the overall character of the wine is retained, with impressive mouth drying tannins, and red berries that, while no longer bold and fresh, still makes their presence felt.

Best Regards,
-> Pinchas

Hi All,

Wanted to drop by and say hello. I visited some family for a simcha this weeksend so we opened a bottle of 2004 Herzog Generation VIII. soft tannins and toasty blackberry with super long finish. showing its age but still some left in the tank.
my notes are biased though since wine always tastes better in good times.
A great week to all.
Moshe F.
