Alphonse Mucha. Часть 1.
Alphonse Mucha. 1860-1939.Витражи, панно, постеры, реклама. Его все знают, но многие его работы разбросаны по разным сайтам, даже на официальном сайте работ немного, некоторые известные веб-галереи не дают его копировать, так как вещи находятся в частных коллекциях- вот я и решила постепенно…
The style of the South African Southern Right 2009 Sauvignon Blanc really surprised me. Plenty of subtle herbs and earthy notes (chives and fresh grass) were backed by a lemony zing. The vegetal, citrus and mineral notes all harmonious mingled and were balanced by a round, creamy texture.
Michael David 2009 Freakshow Cabernet Sauvignon: A little more finesse and structure than their Petit Sirah, the wine has silky tannins, luscious red and black fruit and some vanilla on the end. Will have to revisit this one soon.

Recchia 2005 Amarone della Valpolicella: enjoyed this velvety, full-bodied wine last night with lamb and risotto. Rich and decadent notes of spiced, dried cherry and figs followed by a hint of mint. Soft and slightly fungal on the palate with licorice and more intense, savory fruit with baking spices.
Keep on loving the A to Z 2010 Pinot Noir. This Oregon Pinot is light ruby in color with mushroomy earth, black tea spices, dried herbs, tangy cranberries and raspberries on the nose. Silken tannins, light body and a medium acidity. Have been drinking it with everything from seafood to pizza.
Louis Roederer NV! Bursting with bubbles and an intriguing intensity of rich biscuits and toast, but also highly floral with a bouquet of lemon, clementines and poached pear. There were also wafts of something akin to barley and a dash of white pepper. This champagne tastes strong, musty and musky -- but in an appetizing way. I would really enjoy some Roederer and crispy fried chicken in the near future.
The 2009 M. Chapoutier Belleruche Rouge Côtes du Rhône (left): a lighter (than the Northern Syrah pictured next to it), silkier Grenache-based wine that is fruit-forward and slightly tangy. Strawberries, raspberries and cherries with some country herbs and pepper.
We're going to need a decanter for the Fonseca Bin No. 27 Reserve Porto. A super jammy port that we enjoyed chilled on the porch the other evening (with that poor dead succulent). The plethora of sour cherries, blackberries and chocolate and spice were pure decadence.
