Whoa, this place is a wreck. Guess it was a heck of birthday party. All these empty light boxes, a whole bunch of beer cans, a post-it note that says "Don't forget to check the Dow tonight"... and a refurbished Philips 47" 1080p HDTV? Where'd this come from? Better call the guys at Philips.
Hey, morning, Philips! Oh, sorry, we'll try not to talk so loud. Hey, you know somebody left us a Philips 47" 1080p HDTV? We figured you'd want to know since it's got that great 1920�1080p resolution thing goin' on.
Oh, you left it here on purpose? Well, that's very kind of you! Aw, there's even a card. Guess we just didn't see it at the party. What a cute little duckie, such a sweet little card. Thank you, Philips. Boy, going down the list of features on the Philips 47" 1080p HDTV, it really has everything. Incredible Surround to magnify the sound field, EasyLink for sharing functionality with connected items, Dolby Digital output for a home theater, a bunch of HDMI... wait... did you write this list while you were drunk?
Wait. You're saying you wrote that crap about three HDMI ports on your official website? And on other sites too? Even though it was wrong? Dude. Dude. That's like the funniest thing ever. We told you to stop drinking at midnight, remember? Remember that? Maybe this time it'll stick.
Anyway, we're sure it's no big deal. No, don't worry, the Philips 47" 1080p HDTV is a great TV. Dude, it's 47 inches, people will love it. They won't even care about how many HDMI ports there are. Although there are actually four of them as proven by that photo. No way, dude, you'll never live this one down. Every time we see a cute little duckie from now on... what? Look in our hall closet?
Okay, but we don't know why we're... wait, did you leave me another present? We're opening the closet door now, we're... aw, dude. Dude! That's sick, Philips! Sick! Yeah, okay, guess we are even now. Well played. And thanks for the Philips 47" 1080p HDTV. But, dude, you really need to get more a little more fiber in your diet.

Aye, lads, 'tis true. Weird beasties dwell beneath these waves. Take it from me; I know. Sure'n I've but one eye in me skull, but it's seen plenty. Why, once I caught a glimpse of a fish-headed mermaid! Can ye imagine? From the waist down, she had the standard fish-tail, like ye'd expect--but then she had a fish body from the waist up, too! I mean, mermaids are already a pretty rare sight. But to see one with a fish torso and head? Ye probably won't see her like even if ye sail a hundred lifetimes.
Ah, but strange as she were, she weren't nearly so strange as the deep-sea kitties said to haunt these waters. They calls 'em the Katten! Ye're right to fear these ferocious marine felines, lads. I've heard from old tars who swear a Katten is big as schooners, fast as the wind, and playful as a baby with a set of car keys. If a Katten takes a whim to, she'll bat a ship to matchsticks just for the pleasure of it. 'Tis a horrible way to go, bein' toyed with for hours 'til ye're too battered to be interestin' to her.
They say ye almost never hear one comin' until it's upon ye. Then it's too late. The one exception, o'course, is the Katten they call "Miss Chesterton"--a particularly cruel shorthair to whom the crew of the Zephyr managed to affix their ship's bell before she killed them all and left them on Davy Jones's porch, atop Davy Jones's galoshes. 'Tis a gesture that grosses Davy Jones out, but he understands it's meant as a show of affection.
Aye, they say Miss Chesterton favors this very latitude. And she's known to prowl for ships when the skies are calm, just like tonight, lads. Your only hope, if y'hear her approaching, is to rustle a paper bag loud as ye can. The noise sometimes spooks her. But enough prattle. Listen, will ye? See if y'hear her bell a-janglin' as she stalks ye...
Wear this shirt: in the water, it's fine. Not all cats hate it.
Don't wear this shirt: in the company of sea dogs, lest ye be chased.
This shirt tells the world: "Here be kyttens."

The point is, as you'd expect, it means "purity" in French. And it means purity in white wine - in other words, no oak.
No oak? NO OAK? Yes, the Purit� line from Fess Parker Winery's Epiphany Cellars presents three white wines that taste like wine, not like wine barrels. Nothing but stainless-steel fermenting for this trio, and stainless steel is just about flavorless. That's why they use it so much in, like, cafeterias and whatnot.
So the Purit� 2007 Chardonnay reveals pear, gooseberry, honeydew, white peach, jasmine, and wet stone aromas and Granny Smith apple, citrus zest, mineral, and apricot flavors, in all their un-oaked glory. It probably helps that unlike most un-oaked Chardonnays out there right now, it's sourced from a top vineyard, Ashley's in Santa Rita Hills. That patch of ground is known for its refreshing, brisk minerality and acidity, as you'll soon taste.
Not that the other two are any slouches. Don't confuse the Purit� 2007 Dry Riesling with regular old Riesling; this one is much less sweet. But its bountiful nose of white nectarine, lychee nut, wet stone, lemon zest, and white flowers lacks nothing in the enticing department. Crisply acidic and citrus-y on the palate, it's ideal with white fish, pork, Thai, or Chinese. So's the Purit� 2007 Viognier, although its flavor profile (honeydew, pineapple, lychee, cardamom, grapefruit, honeysuckle, apricot, white peach) also suggests some hot & spicy action.
Hey, notice what phrase we almost always use, but didn't this time? "Hints of oak." Notice what else we didn't say? "Hints of stainless steel." We understand that oak plays a huge role in the traditional white wine, and that's cool, or whatever. But it's not exactly pure, is it?
