A Toast!

It has been quite awhile since last I posted.  I apologize profusely for the extreme delay, but I had a darned good (some might say extreme) reason.  I was presented with a surprise – a big surprise – health challenge.  Thus, as you might imagine, that subject has taken pretty much all my focus for a time.  It also prevented me from enjoying adult beverages for a bit.

Now that things are looking a tad brighter, I thought I’d pop a bottle of bubbly stuff to celebrate.  (Don’t worry, I have the doctors’ blessings) So ….  Cheers!

Notes:  On the nose of this extremely pale sparkling wine I caught a very sharp citrus scent.  On the tongue I thought acidity was good and the body characteristically light.  Flavors consisted of a citrus core with hints of almond and toast.  It was quite bubbly.  I’d even call it aggressively effervescent – almost too much for me.  Even so, I was more than pleased to have the opportunity to let it prick my tongue and tickle my nose.
