Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2004 Keller Riesling Trocken -S- and 2006 Château Pavie Macquin with dinner on Saturday night. Both of these wines were awesome. The Keller is drinking at absolute peak IMO and the PM is drinking well with a lengthy decant but it has a decade or two left in the tank. The Keller was all charm and finesse and the PM was all brawn and pure enjoyment with cherry, blueberry, coffee and tobacco. Went great with the Rib Roast I made.
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.
