Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2013 Wagner-Stempel Siefersheimer Riesling Vom Porphyr Trocken. What can I say…when in Germany, do as the Germans do. This is so delicious it’s just silly. Laser focused fruit and minerality, but lush on the midpalate and pretty on the finish. I don’t remember what I paid exactly, but it was cheap by US standards. I could drink this every day.
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.
