Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2003 Sociando Mallet with dinner tonight. First bottle of this I’ve opened and this #wine is ready to drink. Wide open for business and the most accessible Sociando Mallet I have ever tried. Just tons of fruit in this and the tannins are downright pleasant. Classic Medoc nose of tobacco and pencil shavings and black currant on the palate all the way. Very clean wine. Finish is a tad shorter than I expected. Ready to drink now and no need to wait. #france #bordeaux #medoc #leftbank #goodstuff #food #foodwine
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.
