Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2009 Sella Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva. Thursday night #wine that pleases. Earth, spice and some funk. Pinot-esque in body and simply drinkable, especially with some food. Bought this for $10 per bottle at Central Market here in ATX two weekends ago. Stupid good value. Drank it at Oliveto Ristorante in London in March and was awesome then with Pizza. This is a case buy. #italy #sardinia #cannonau #food
I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
