    Under the Moon

    Jonas, The Blizzard of 2016 arrived on Friday as an epic event on the east coast. But for me, the epic event was the arrival of the second full moon since the December solstice. Set to reach the crest of its full phase on Saturday evening, January 23 at 8:46 p.m. EST, this full moon, often called the Snow Moon,  gave new context to the arrival of white flakes ushered into the sky on a pushy, tormented wind.

    aromas of white peach, litchi and acacia flowers. On the palate ripe and pulpy fruit with good concentration and hints of herbs & grass with richness of Semillon that gave it noticeable weight on the mid palate--letting it rest there before plunging toward its fresh acidity of Sauvignon Blanc on the finish.
