Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2013 Weingut Rings Freinsheim Spätburgunder. This was a follow up to the amazing Briailles Fourneaux, but it was definitely a worthy successor. Riper, rounder and darker than the burgundy, this had more power and fruit but also a lot more of everything. Perfect pairing for a pork roast tonight and I would pair this with game, pork and even beef. Rings makes some terrific stuff and @grapeylyle picked a winner.
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.
