Justice. In our day and time is it prevalent? Are we ourselves adept in administering a judgement? On others or on ourselves..

Hi, Harry. I'm actively seeking some Israeli wines locally, if possible something a step above the Barkan and the low-end Recanati bottlings that seem to represent most of the local inventory. Meanwhile, we enjoyed a nice, aromatic Argentine white ...

Alamos 2015 Salta Torrontés ($9.99)

Light, transparent straw color with a faint greenish hue. Delicious citric aroma blends mandarin oranges and white grapefruit, which carry over on the palate in a flavor impression so vibrant and fruity that it almost seems sweet, but crisp, zippy fresh-fruit acidity holds it in balance. A touch of stone fruit and faint peach-pit bitterness join citrus in a very long finish. A claimed 13% alcohol level adds a little body, but it's not out of line for a white. The back label suggests spicy empanadas or grilled fish. We enjoyed it with linguine in linguine with a light sauce of free-range eggs briefly cooked in garlic sauteed in butter.

Hi Harry,

Friday night I had the Matar Chenin Blanc 2015. The wine marries some good fruit with pollen and nuts over a steely mineral backbone, that--when combined--make its presence felt by dint of its weight and range of flavor. Think Floyd Mayweather. Then, Saturday, I enjoyed the Flam Reserve Syrah 2011. This time around, what grabbed my attention was its sanguine character that brings its meaty flavors into focus, overshadowing its fruit and tannins.

Best Regards,
-> Pinchas
