Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2014 Xarmant Arabako Txakolina. I admit it…I am obsessed with Txakolina. It is one of the greatest white wine values in the world and I just love these wines no matter the price. This one was slightly spritzy, super fresh, zingy and citrus flavors and a silky fine texture that makes this the perfect wine for a hot day in Texas or anywhere else.
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.
