I would like to make grand sweeping statements about how good or bad this wine is.
I would like to make specific arguments to support the above conclusions.
I would like to make brilliant observations about this wine.
I can’t.
I took this wine to a backgammon tournament I was playing and I downed it while playing the round robin portion of the tournament.
I made a few notes about the wine. It is light and easy to drink. I was drinking it out of one of those mason jar mug/glasses. It did not spoil the enjoyment of the wine. Perhaps it even enhanced it. I was concentrating on the game and the wine.
Backgammon is a great game. It is an ancient game. It is a pure mix of skill and luck. It is very Machiavellian in a sense where one has to have luck and skill balanced to be successful.
This wine suited the game. It was light and easy to drink. There were no heavy flavours that spoiled my concentration. It was entirely pleasant.
My round robin results were 2 wins one loss… and then the strength of the wines presence in my body lead me to victory.
