Two Pair Beats A Flush

No, I am not revising the rules of poker.

Alexander Pope is quoted as saying, " A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" What about a pair of bald eagles roosting within view of your house? It sure beats a flush in my book.

The pair of wines we sampled this weekend were more of a disappointment. The first was a 2006 Kim Crawford Pinot Noir from New Zealand. It was thinner than most supermodels and about as appealing with little to no complexity.

The other was a 2005 Ken Forrester Petit Chenin from South Africa. Although beautiful in color, it had little aroma or flavor.

The best pair of the weekend was the eagles, hands down!
