b"sd
the eighth note in music takes the seven to the next level
we can do that with all of our world including our wine. but if we just want to enjoy without ever having constraint or love wuthout respect we are only the loving ourselves and we burn ourselves out.
Have a good one; H

Birthday wine! :)

Puzelat-Bonhomme 2011 Touraine “La Tesnière” Pinot d'Aunis ($17.49)

Rather light ruby color, and the slight haze that I reported in tasting a newly arrived bottle in November 2013 seems to have fallen clear. I was worried how the wine was faring six years after the vintage, but it’s holding up well if not evolving; it’s not really a wine meant for the long term, but it’s sturdy, little changed. The intriguing aroma mingles fresh violets and a generous grind of fragrant white pepper, and it’s crisp and snappy in flavor, fresh acidity, dried cherries and white pepper and distinctly stony minerality in a very long finish. My wife loves this wine and so do I; we bought half-cases of the 2010 through 2013 as the came along, but it’s not made any more. Only one 2012 is left in our stash, and we’ll drink it up for a special occasion this summer. U.S. importer: LDM Wines Inc., NYC; Louis/Dressner Selections. (April 22, 2017)

Mond Syrah-Cabernet 2007 matched nicely with moussaka for Shabbat dinner. A previous bottle of this wine was off when I opened it a couple of years ago, so I was concerned that this one might be bad too, but it turned out to be ok, though not as exciting as I remember. Enough left in the bottle for a glass after work.

Kerem Tesha White Version in the garden Shabbat afternoon as the oppressive heat began to subside. White Version is a delightfully refreshing blend of French Colombard, Viognier, and Roussanne, with a touch of Gewürztraminer.

Pesach is over; back to drinking both kosher and non-kosher wines

2008 Dark Star Paso Robles "Left Turn" (60% zinfandel, 30% syrah, 10% mourvedre), which still had the typical Paso robles "jammy" zin favors together with earthiness from the other two grapes. Had bought it from the winery; still looking good after 8 years from harvest.

Hi Harry,

This week I went with a wine that somehow didn't make it to the table over Passover, the Hajdu Besomim NV. It's a Zinfandel based field blend, that is indeed very fragrant and worthy of its Hebrew name that translates to spice, though to me it stands primarily for sweet smelling spice such as clove. It has a soft underbelly, with little acidity, but its richness is enjoyable.

Best Regards,
-> Pinchas
