Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2012 Arndt F Werner Blauer Spaetburgunder -S- Ingelheimer Burgberg trocken. Ridiculously delicious wine with an equally delicious dinner at Landgasthof Kirschgarten in Wackernheim Germany tonight. Biodynamically grown and had power, finesse, earthiness and crunchy berry fruit in spades. Food wine of the highest degree that paired well with venison based clear broth soup, lamb strap and even a warm chocolate cake for dessert. @grapeylyle you gotta look at this producer.
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.
