    Even after ten years of tasting, I'm still fascinated by the sheer volume and differences of expression that wine can have. Unfortunately, until recently I never took notes, preferring to just purchase the wines I loved. You'll find many of them here, as well as everything else I just had to try. Along with tasting notes for specific wines, each section gives basic info about the grape varietal and what the wine should taste like. Most wines can be found under their specific varietals. Blends by the style – Bordeaux or Rhone – or under Others if it's a random mix. My main assessment is focused on the quality for the price, which is a fairly big factor in one's expectations and enjoyment of a particular wine. Though every time I've done a blind tasting, one of the least expensive bottles is the group's favorite. Go figure.

    that's as good as they're going to feel all day."

    Clearly see the "big picture" of all wine grape varieties and how they relate to one another. A must have learning tool for beginner and expert alike
    that makes tasting fun and educational.
