Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2015 Weingut Gold Cabernet Sauvignon Großheppacher. I really want to like this. I have tried it multiple times now and no matter how, when and how many times I try, it just doesn’t grow on me. Not that there is anything obviously wrong with it…it just feels too one-dimensional and frankly rough around the edges (almost rustic) and with a shrill and wild kind of acidity. One of the VERY few wines in the Fass portfolio that I just don’t like.
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.
