Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
Awesome cup of coffee this morning, so I just had to post. This is Bali coffee that we brought back from our trip there this summer. Drinking this really transports me back to Bali because it is a highly fragrant coffee that has a distinct earthy flavor and nutty aroma. And did I mention it is strong stuff? The Balinese drink this unfiltered with the grounds floating in the brew. Drinking it like the locals will put hair on anyone’s chest. I drink this filtered, but that does not take away from the flavor IMO.
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.
