Another life lesson.
Recently, like about a few years ago, I discovered the most appropriate culinary pairing.
Oven-toasted Apple Blessoms and Argentinian Malbec.
The warm and toasty, yet delicate apple cinnamon notes graciously complimenting the earthy malbecy aromas, fastidiously interlacing South American panache with North American wholesomeness.
The golden brown hues of the Blessom absorbing the complex inky violet shades of the unique, and obviously Mendozen foothill-sourced, thick-skinned grapes leaving the discerning palate yearning for more.
Each succulent, gooey bite paired with a properly aerated sip, suckled through ergonomically clenched teeth, combining the essence of all that is grand in the world today.
The new world. And the old one.
All worlds. As one.
Together in my mouth.
