Abstract Shades of Gray?

No, not really an abstract, but it is the roof of the local medical center after the recent ice and snow fall. Not that I'm a Zen master, but sometimes when there really isn't much there it all comes together to make an attractive picture .

That also describes tonight's wine, a 2006 La Serra Chianti Colli Senesi. Yes, there's some fruit, there's some acid, there's some tannin, there's a nose and there's a finish, but they are very much shades of gray and not outstanding in any way, shape, form or color. Having said that, it's a very drinakable little wine and at 12% alcohol it's like having a couple of beers. Sometimes not trying to be much works.
