2017 Merlot

Jeff’s Corner

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Habari Gani, Happy Holidays, and to cover all the bases, Seasons Greetings! As the countdown to the final frenzy accelerates exponentially, Kathy and I are going to take a deep breath and chill out.

Now it’s easy to distinguish what’s in the bottle by the label. Whites and sweets have a white label, reds a black, and the Rosé a black with silver lettering.

Kathy and I spent a quiet day together that began with a lovely brunch of smoked salmon, bagels, cream cheese, capers, red onion and fresh fruit. This, by the way, paired wonderfully with a bottle of 2016 Heath Sparkling Adoration. The rest of the day was filled with memories, laughter, a few tears and the smell of pie baking and turkey roasting.
