Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2013 Weingut Rings Freinsheim Spätburgunder. This is such an expressive wine. It is a gooseberry, red currant, rhubarb and strawberry bomb. The nose explodes in your face, and the flavors explode on your palate. Not particularly earthy, this also has tons of lipsmacking acidity and is a pleasure to drink all the way. Best paired with fatty meats and flavorful dishes.
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.
