Appeared / WeeksEnd wine

bsd
why is it sometimes things are so clear and at other timrs so distant.
If we look through a clea window we can see as far as the vision reaches.if the glass is smudged it becomes a mirror and see only myself. if i only love in a relationship it results in its final analysis as self love. but when coupled with respect i
one can see as far as the vision allows.
Have a good one; H

Hi Harry,

The white was the Matar Chenin Blanc 2014. While the variety traditionally showcases nuttiness, I didn't detect that in this bottle, but instead I got well focused citrus, primarily citrine. For the red I opened a bottle of the Ben Haim Cabernet Sauvignon Grande Reserve 2012. I find it somewhat odd that I don't have any recollection of what the wine was like.

Best Regards,
-> Pinchas

Hi, Harry.

Oyster Bay 2012 Marlborough Pinot Noir ($14.99)
Clear ruby color, quite dark at the core but shading quickly to a clear edge. Light red fruit and a pleasant whiff of ripe, just-cut tomato - a characteristic that I often find in cool-climate Pinot Noir - shows in the nose and on the palate. It's brisk and acidic in the flavor, tart and palate-cleansing, rather light-bodied, with a soft edge of tannins and a hint of stony minerality in the finish. 13% alcohol in a wine that's distinctly Pinot Noir, more reminiscent of the Old World than the New. Fine with beef, burgers and meatloaf. It would also go well with Pinot's alternate companions: salmon, mushrooms, and cheeses.
