Set Before You / Friday Night wine

bsd
Choices.How to decide? Narrowed down to just two.Kind of like in wine to red or white.
To give or take.To remain as is or to become.
When we can truly choose,it's a gift
which we hopefully use wisely.
Have a good one; h

Harry, Hi....

Tonight it was the Yatir Forest, 2005. Too young for sure but thoroughly enjoyable despite that.

Best

The only kosher wine easily available here is Herzog. And I have a couple of bottles of hagefen that I got when they were available during Pesach. I miss Gan Eden. And I wish Israeli wines were available here.

Shabbat Shalom, Harry. And happy Elul.

Friday night we opened a bottle of Yarden Syrah 2002. Very nice with deep plummy notes and spicy oak. It was, however, a bit hot on the palate with its 14.5% alcohol. Very enjoyable nonetheless.

Shabbat day we drank Ella Valley Chardonnay 2005. I still believe that winemaker Doron Rav-Hon makes the best Chard in Israel--or at least my favorite. Showing very nicely now with a beautiful golden color and great balance. Opens with flinty green apples and yields to buttery toasty notes with lively minerals.

Shavua tov (wishes for a good week) to all.
