“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

I always push Jing because his wine is out there and often so fine and subtle that I you wouldn't expect too many buffs to gulp

The 9 By Jingo Montelpulciano Zinfandel is Jezebel just before the eunuchs chucked her out the window. She was my girl.
