Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
Counter Culture Chema this morning. This certified organic coffee from Uganda is slightly disappointing. It’s a very clean, very straightforward, and vwry smooth coffee that lacks in the complexity department. I can sort of see the savory note, but beyond that it is milk chocolate all the way, which I find just a tad boring. I was hoping for a little bit more verve and high notes.
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.
