Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
Heart Roasters Ethiopia Aricha this morning. Great stuff that has a very distinctive lemon peel note and packs a mean punch of spice. Very intense coffee. Almost the same intensity level as many SL28 Kenyan coffees. @heartroasters definitely roasted this one just right. This will give me a couple of weeks of delicious morning cups.
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.
