Fungi, Moss and Riesling

Moss and Fungi

Yesterday's weather here put me in the mood for a good Riesling, and that was satisfied last night with a 2010 Alfred Merkelbach Urziger Wurtzgarten Spatlese.  Dinner was some spicy Hong Kong noodles with edamame and mushrooms. The wine was a perfect match.   Totally crisp and bright at the first sip this wine had just enough sweetness at the finish to balance out the heat from the sauce on the noodles. Merkelbach wines are among the best values I know.

Overnight the weather turned November-ish.  It was cool, damp, foggy and misty with intermittent light rain.  During our abbreviated walk this morning the dog and I came across this decaying log in the woods that was serving as a host for a number of its friends.
