Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2007 Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon. I brought this one. Old school CA cab that is deep dark and purple and really show the briary and black currant that is planted on volcanic soil. And the nose on this is to die for. This is going to go the distance for decades and get better. I love this wine. It shows what CA is capable of as far as food wines are concerned.
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.
