There's a cute expression in recent years;blah blah blah.Words are so important.They are the crown of tools distinguishing us from other creatures. But when it comes to children what we are and what we do speaks speaks the loudest.

A simple and inexpensive wine, but one that takes me back to youthful remembrance of enjoying modest Italian reds over dinner with family and friends.

Querceto 2015 Chianti ($10.99)

Clear, dark ruby, shading to a clear edge. Typical Chianti aromas, tart cherries and dried cherries and a hint of spice, carrying over on the palate in a bright, food-friendly flavor, palate-cleansing acidity and soft tannins, with refreshing black-cherry flavors and lemon-squirt acidity lingering in a very long finish. 12.5% alcohol. U.S. importer: Prestige Wine Imports LLC, NYC. (May 7, 2017)

FOOD MATCH: Basic Chianti, stereotypical food match: It was very good indeed with spaghetti with a mushroom and tomato sauce. It would be just as good with meat sauce or meatballs.

Hi Harry,

The white of the week was the Matar Chenin Blanc 2014. While light in hue and heft, it is also suave in flavor and feel. Although it doesn't deliver the characteristic nuttiness I like in this varietal, it still serves up an array of fruit, ranging from the cool pear and apple to the summer peach, with a tad of bitterness to keep it all in check, lending it an air of composed gaiety, restraining it from seeming like "spring in a bottle". Then for a red, I had the Prix Hagafen Pinot Noir 2014. This is a wine defined by its smokiness. While the black cherry is clearly discernible, it is not its purity nor richness that strikes me, but the way in which its flavors interact with the smokiness of the barrel, playing with it as a prism would with the rays hitting it, reflecting them in an array of diffused colors.

Best regards,
-> Pinchas
