IMG_E7443Floral skip into the wine’s most known of intentions— delivering atmosphere and a free-spirited note storm that captures and captives you with acrobatic apricot chimes and direct peachy and pair settings.  This bottle doesn’t have any reason to hide her bewitching orations— segueing into turns of white roses and Hawaiian flower bed modality in olfactory and tactile, taste, more than merely what so many dumb down to the word “palate”.  She pulls you further along her histoire.

Contrasting and seemingly contradicting dimensions to her ardor, mightiness in mouth, but there is the statement, the thesis, the delicious defiance of this Dry Creek Viognier from one of my favorite houses on ‘The Road’.  To the sip, there is no finish.  She refuses to slow her speech— she only repeats, ravishingly and with beatific bounce.

img_7363Friendly and frenzied.  Lovely and loving in everything she does.  Brings you into her climate with gentle, tropical, slightly rich rhetoric.  She’s passionate, passing with her sped and then slow pulses— animated apple, intent citrus, and only a wink of oak suggestion, and just a suggestion.  Like an engaging painting, showing something new each time you visit the work’s exhibit.

This is a bottle that helps with Chardonnay standoffs, people as I used to be telling themselves they’re opposed to American interpretations of white Burgundy.  There’s jazz in this bottle— tactile and auditory, otherworldly touches that have you with eyes closed, in deep appreciation of all notes.  She rises only to fall into you… fierce connection on levels all.

Wine, Words

IMG_9256It’s all relative to our Human Experiences, but some wines I’ve had recently for some reason speak in cosmic terms; the stars, the planets, the orbits, gravities, and what be.  Not just those simplistic and dumbing monosyllabic notes from Wine Spectator.  Something more personal and intimate, something connected to your Personhood.  How do you describe wine?  What did you last sip?  How would you describe it?


Bottled Thought:  002


Wine is a travel, I’m starting to see at my age.  A growth and a story, a voice with my voice–  Traveling through life and moments as a wine chaser, teaching me; the bottles look at me intently, with urge to gently and effusively instruct.  Last night I sipped the rest of a Sonoma Coast Pinot while last week I was in Syrah’s sprawl.  One varietal then to the next type, vintage to vintage, teaching me more about me and my place with wine.  Where will I be tomorrow, though-wise and with my reflective skips, with wine?  I don’t know, and I love that.  Wine and I follow each other, it’s this metered tango that we both don’t want to stop.  And the synergy is infectious.
