vino thinking

IMG_8812When swirling, don’t swirl too much.  You want the wine open, or opened-up as too many say, but I would argue not too. much.  It’s desirable and advantageous to leave some of that rawness and that very direct and telling honesty in the wine.  That’s when wine teaches you, shows you so much about your relationship with what’s in the glass and why you started on a wined exploration in the first place.  Don’t let your attention be diverted by the supposed obligation to swirl what’s in your glass and make some ‘cool’ shape and shade against the bowl’s walls.  The importance lies in the wine and what it says to you.
