A lovely post Harry! Thanks.

As to wines - as often happens, early dinner on Friday and with that three wines

Golan Heights Winery, Cabernet Sauvignon, El Rom Vineyard, 2004
Chateau Cos d’Estournel, St.-Estephe, 2002
Chateau Guiraud, Sauternes, 2003

Believe me, a heckuva fine way to end the old year.

Wow Daniel - nice set of wines. We are laying low, so I will pop open one of my favorite comfort wines: Four Gates Chardonnay 2000. The wine is still showing quite nicely.

Have a great Shabbos!

Friday night, 2003 Yarden Ortal Merlot. Another winning effort by Yarden, with the consequence that the bottle got finished Friday night (really good bottles get finished Friday night, good bottles get finished at Shabbos lunch)

Shabbos lunch, 2006 Capcanes Peraj Petita. Good wine, but it suffered in perception due to the proximity to the Ortal.

Had a Yarden Syrah 2002, a prittie good wine, full body and fruit, nicely done and smooth all the way, on the nose and palate some blackberries and plum, some spices and wood or maybe just "spicy wood" :wink: and on the finish some sweet blueberrie notes and dark chocolate, interesting.
the next day i had left just enough wine for kiddush, still ok but the alcohol was felt much more and some clove kicked in all the way to the finish, wich i didnt like.
a wonderull week and Year to all
best regards

Following Kiddush and HaMotzi, our Friday night Shabbat meal began with "chreimeh" followed by vegetarian minestrone soup - both courses accompanied by the Yarden 2006 Viognier. We decided to wait until Rosh HaShana to serve the Yatir 2007 Viognier. The Yarden was perfect for both courses, but especially with the spicy fish. We served a Yarden 2003 Merlot along with a baked chicken and peppers dish. The fruity flavors went well with the chicken's basil and oregano spicing.

It was Carmel all the way this Shabbat. I must say the azorit wines single vineyard and blended proved to be very good value for money.
Chardonnay, Merlot, Cab from Kaumi all went down well. Due to a minor simcha we had b"h lots of people and plenty of wine. We started with Carmel champagne. It went like hot cake not withstanding the fact I don't appreciate it yet.
Shana Tova to all my friends.

Friday night Kiddush started out with Bustan Syrah, 2005, a full-bodied, delicately complex wine with a bit of life ahead of it. We then moved onto the Tzora, Ilan, CS, 2003, carrying a deep color and matured excellence. Because of the particular household head of these family hosts, I didn't open up any white wines for Shabbat.

Shabbat lunch had for Kiddush the Tzuba Sangiovese, 2006, which was gaining tiny bounds of its complexity as a fun, fruity, every-day wine. I probably started pouring the Yatir Shiraz, 2005 (my second tasting) a little too early after opening, but even after a couple hours of exposure to air it was a a bit more approachable but a very powerful Shiraz with a lot of potential for years to come. When the two wines were observed side to side, the Sangiovese had the clarity and color something that of a light version of the Carmel Tirosh, yet the Yatir Shiraz had a dark violet to it.

My post-Shabbat hiking/camping trip to the Upper Galilee did not entail any wines, yet the weekend's wines that supplemented the two first meals more than prepared us for Rosh haShannah celebrations.

Best wishes and a sweet New Year and fulfilling season to all!

In a hotel in Mubai over Shabbat with no wine. Will try and make up for it over RH. A good and healthy year to all.

Yaakov.....

Is that Mubai in Mozambique or Mumbai (Bombay) in India? And in either case, what in the world are you doing there?

For the uninformed (probably about 99.94% of the population of the world), the Chabad-Lubivetcher movement is one of the most devout of all Jewish movements, considered by some to be one of the most joyous celebration of life, by others a group with a cult-like following.

My questions, and in full seriousness - (a) What wines do the Chabad offer in Bombay and (b) what kind and quality of food is offered by Moshe's?
