TN: a nice white from Marsannay
On way back from city last night stopped at the uptown Fairway for

bodied, crisp Bosc pear fruit, good acids, nice length for a $20

the match is my fault not the wine in any case. Another glass later in
evening is quite satisfying, and I'll order more. B+

offer no*promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of
