About

I love drinking wine. I also love talking about wine and sharing my experiences and opinions with friends. My main goal here is to share my stories with you in a casual and unpretentious way. Remember, at the end of the day, we're just talking about grape juice.

I hope I can help you learn a thing or two about wine!

* I choose my own wines to drink and write about. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Dark and voluptuous. Balanced. Different, but not funky. A great change from the everyday. I really really suggest you give this one a shot. The flavor continued to develop over time.
