Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
Stumptown Ethiopia Duromina this morning. My first time trying this coffee from @stumptown. Lovely stuff that is rather subtle and understated but packs a quiet intensity that is sort of charming. I find it very floral and lemony. Impressive stuff that can easily be had black even for people who normally prefer milk added.
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.
