Words of Isolation / WeeksEnd wine

In the culinary world there are multitude levels of care and attention involved in what we eat and drink and stepping back a step the care and attention in how its prepared.
What goes beyond our wildest imagination is a zone in time where we can work on and excercise care in what words come out of our mouths.But that's far out.
Have a good one; H

Tanya Eliya 2011/2012 (70% CS 2011 + 30% Merlot 2012) to accompany Shabbat dinner of tongue in a red wine garlic mustard sauce with unsweetened cranberries. The wine was quite powerful and somewhat jammy, with aromas of port. Knocked off the rest of the bottle on Shabbat afternoon, by which time it had relaxed a bit.

Saturday night, a simple but pleasant Austrian red, sold in a liter bottle.

Berger 2014 Zweigelt ($16.99/1 liter)

I’ve reviewed this popular Austrian red several times, but past vintages have been labeled from the Kremstal region; this label claims only “Lower Austria.” Nevertheless, it is very similar in style to the 2013 bottling tasted last August. It’s a clear ruby color, not too dark, almost transparent at the edge with bright crimson glints against the light. Red-berry and tart cherry aromas fill the glass, giving way to tart cranberry fruit on the palate, mouth-watering acidity and just a whiff of soft tannins in a very long finish. U.S. importer: Skurnik Wines, NYC., a Terry Theise Estate Selection.

Hi Harry,

With somewhat of a lull in the number of guest drinking wine, and perhaps some palate fatigue after Passover, I opened a single bottle: Four Gates Merlot 2010. In the glass, the wine shows beautifully saturated hues of garnet. On the palate it highlights red berries, accompanied by silky tannins. The acid is subdued. Overall the wine goes well with a variety of Sabbath dishes.

Best Regards,
-> Pinchas
