Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
I have been enjoying this Counter Culture Finca Belgravia for the last few days. One of the better coffees I have had from Counter Culture Coffee in a while. This one is all about the nutty caramel notes and juicy feel to it. Has good acidity and power. This one is a blend of Bourbon and Tabi beans and it is noticeable right away that the beans are very small (as in African heirloom small). Lovely stuff.
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.
