Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2013 Ziereisen Blauer Spätburgunder. @grapeylyle will disapprove because I didn’t wait three weeks…but I just couldn’t help myself…this is all about the fruit. Super accessible, round blackberry, cherry and red currant. Not the most complex wine in the world but very tasty and bursting with flavor. It was a good match for grilled meat and that is the role I see it playing in my household/kitchen.
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.
