Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2011 Henrik Möbitz Köpfle Pinot Noir tonight. What is more German than some brussel sprouts (Rosenkohl) and Spaetburgunder? And there will be some roast chicken and polenta with it. The wine itself is riper than I expected and lacks a little in the complexity department relative to the Enderle Moll from yesterday. Very spice and earth forward. Overall still interesting and worthwhile to drink.
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.
