[Eve's Wine 101] Wine Tasting with the Importer of the Year, Alex Guarachi, CEO ...: Proving what Ive recently learned, that lower alcohol wines are great for the daytime this Symphony would have paired well with either Belgian waffles topped with fresh strawberries or some Stilton blue cheese. The color, almost clear like the highest-grade diamond, but with the lightest of straw color on the edge. It had an effervescence when I re-opened it hours after my initial tasting. Again, as with the Pinot Noir, the aromas swept up to me before I even brought my nose to the glass. This time I found honey quickly followed by jasmine, pear and the palest essence of pink lemonade.

Id have to say a good 92 or more Eve Points.

[Peach Water] Taxi Dining Room: There was a mid-age couple sitting next to us, who gave both Janelle and I strange looks when we started taking photos of the butter.
