2003 M. Chapoutier Hermitage La Sizeranne with Porterhouse steaks tonight. While one can easily tell that 2003 was a very hot vintage based on the rather bombastic fruit profile, there is also the rather typical olive tapenade, blackberry flavors, and overall balance that I associate with Hermitage. Went wonderfully with the grilled meat and could easily be paired with any flavorful meats or fowl.

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.
