Still working through effects of the move and living a different lifestyle. meanwhile enjoying a bottle of 2014 Yarden syrah, obtained at a small discount - probably in anticipation of the arrival of the next vintage.

Yoel, best wishes! LIfestyle changes seem to take a whack at one's emotions under even the best of circumstances.

A nice, albeit rather hot, Amontillado from Emilio Lustau:

Lustau Amontillado "Los Arcos" ($21.99)

Rich, full walnut aromas, a mix of fresh-cracked walnuts and Nocino Italian walnut liqueur, with a piquant back note of lemon. Nuts and tangy lemon carry over on the palate, light brown-sugar sweetness more than overpowered by sharp acidity. Hints of dark chocolate join walnuts and citrus in the flavor with a touch of alcoholic heat, a complex wine that opens up remarkably with cheese or other unctuous food match. Labeled "Solera Familiar," Lustau's good but relatively affordable range. We found it just a bit hot for sipping on its own, but buttery cheeses worked a miracle, softening its sharpness and heat while bringing up the nutty, dark-chocolate flavors.

Hi Harry,

I started out with the Vitkin Grenache Blanc 2016. This lovely wine has broad strokes of Granny Smith all over it, and in the cracks one can detect shoots of various flowers. Its weighty enough to support a meal of fish or poultry. Then I moved to the Judean Hills 2013 from Tzora. On contact it felt a bit hot, and Eucalyptus was dominant, but by day the heat subsided considerably, and the fruit came forth, rounding it all out nicely, making for a very food friendly wine.

Best Regards,
-> Pinchas
