    What a wonderful name; I hope the beverage was as good as the name suggests.

    Purchased some white wine - a Spanish wine that was recommended to me and an Australian Riesling.

    Sipping a Spanish white wine: Godello Pazo Pondal Bierzo 2016.

    Very palatable.

    Well it’s actually still breathing at the moment, so it’ll be a few before I can give some details.

    However, this is from a little place I’m fond of in the Dry Creek Valley in Northern California, 2014 vintage. It ought to be pretty tasty.

    I look forward to reading "those details".

    For myself, a bottle of Spanish wine has gone down exceeding well, and I am now sipping a glass (or two) of an aged PX sherry.

    A glass or two of Riesling.

    This one hails from Australia, and goes by the name of O'Leary Walker (Polish Hill River).

    Last night’s GSM was deliciously smooth with notes of pepper, licorice, and herbs. Tonight I’m going for a Pinot Noir...

    What is a GSM? A wine with a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah, perchance?

    If so, I can well imagine that it was deliciously smooth. Some of the wines from the south of France come with this blend, and, done properly, it can be stunning.

    What was the wine, and where was it from?

    Yes indeed it was a Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre blend. I bought it from a small family winery in Dry Creek Valley in Northern California. It was really quite tasty.

    And now, I have just opened my fourth CBS of tonight.

    Sweet pain.

    Was else can I say?

    I like Grenache (a lot) when it appears in red wines - (Grenache Rouge) - that quality of smoothness the grape bestows on a wine is one I find I have come to increasingly appreciate over time.

    However, Grenache Blanc sounds most interesting.
