The Tasting

Close your eyes, Pilgrim!

The road with the staff, the sunset with the east, the wine with the dishes, the road with the destination. To taste a perfect pairing, choose a chair, sit on it facing Olt and imagine an ancient labyrinth. You leave yourself to the will of the guide who takes you through all the shades from white to red. You pass through an acacia forest, a chain of flowers, a velvet-lined room, a storm under a bloody sunset, a parting many years ago that you thought you had forgotten. Where you stop is entirely your decision but remember that the copper rose goes best with the sunset of August.
