Excellent Napa representation of a Bordeaux blend. Went very well with Chipotle beef burrito. Deep ruby color throughout with long, thick legs. Nose of dark fruit, leather and toast. Opening of black fruit favoring black cherry and black plum with dried leaves, violets, licorice and granite. Medium-plus bodied and medium acidity with lovely, complex tannins that emerge slowly and fade gracefully. Peace and cheers! --Ed Lamb
Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM associates the lung/large intestine energy system with the season of Autumn. Our lungs and immune system experience a particular vulnerability at that time also with cold, dry weather or non-nourishing foods.
Traditional Chinese Medicine’s (TCM) theory teaches that we are part of Nature and are made up of her elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal. Each element has corresponding organ systems and their functions. The Five Elements is an ancient elaboration of the endocrine system.
