Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
Heart Ethiopia Jipat this morning. Super clean cup of coffee with breakfast and a good item in the Counter Culture Coffee lineup. Not as tea like and floral as the Duromina I’ve been enjoying. A little darker and more brooding with a chocolate and malt undertone. This is one where I can use a touch less coffee beans to adjust for the texture of the cup.
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.
