Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2004 Weingut Keller Riesling von der Fels to go with Chicken Milanese and Radicchio/Endive/Orange salad tonight. Match made in heaven. The mature Riesling provided both enough acidity to counter the olive oil sauteed chicken and the heft to balance the bitterness of the Radicchio. While this wine will keep longer still, I think this is drinking like a dream right now. Soft apple, honey and white flowers with crisp acidity but surprising mellowness on the finish. Delicious.
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.
