sweets on the table



2005 Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Port | DOC Douro

Today was the first day I've been back at the gym in just over 2 weeks. And it was as gruesome as I thought it would be. We'll get the conditioning back there, eventually.

These certainly didn't help. I never eat sweets, but it seemed everyday these holidays, it was some kind of cake, some kind of pastry. Good though. Variety is the spice of life, right? Kind of odd though, that I absolutely adore sweet wines. And what kind of winter would it be without port? Simple LBV port, hitting all the right notes. Pure fruit, good concentration and all that.

And the only thing requires a bit of thought? Make sure the wine is sweeter than whatever pastry/cake/butter bomb you're eating.
