Shabbat dinner at a friend's house. 2013 Mt. Tabor "Har" syrah, a pleasant wine.

NV Vitkin Mehazak (fortified ) dessert wine; also pleasant but faded next to a fine vintage port.

Sokol-Blosser 2016 Dundee Hills Estate Cuvée Rosé of Pinot Noir ($19.99)

Pretty, clear light rosy pink color. Red berry and subtle wildflower scent, fresh, a touch of strawberries on the palate, perhaps the one clear signal of its Pinot Noir provenance. The winery claims a small amount of residual sugar, but it appears bone-dry and faintly prickly, with 12% alcohol; an intriguing hint of “rainwater” minerality in the background. Crisp and tart, red berries and subtle lemon-lime in a very long finish. Great with a Caprese salad of ripe garden tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and garden basil with fine olive oil. Also a delicious summer sipper on its own or turned into a light, quenching spritzer with equal portions of rosé and sparkling water over ice in a tall glass with lemon.

Hi Harry,

With dinner that was somewhat lighter than the traditional Friday evening meal, I had the Tabor Adama Zohar 2014, a white blend containing Sauvignon Blanc, 40%, and equal parts Chardonnay, Roussanne and French Colombard, that coalesce seamlessly into an elegant flowery bouquet of scents and flavors. The opposing forces are tamed in a yin-yang union, rather than behaving as offsetting centrifugal forces, such that even the lack of acidity works to accentuate the wine's mellowness without coming across as a flaw. For lunch I opened my first bottle of the Matar Stratus 2014, a Syrah showcasing dark fruit, albeit restrained, but whose distinguishing attributes are its meaty flavors, not so much pastrami as corned beef; flavors that would definitely grab the attention of those who would typically have their Syrahs garlanded with flowers, sprinkled with pepper and oozing jam.

Best Regards,
-> Pinchas
