Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2005 Mas de Daumas Gassac Vin de Pays de l’Hérault with pork porterhouse, grilled kale and Texas Zipper Creamer beans. Delicious stuff. Cabernet Sauvignon is the star, but it has elegance, finesse and a wild nature that I find very interesting. Deep dark and brooding, this has tons of freshness and it is a quintessential food wine.
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.
