Had a glass

These reviews focus on the wines we weren’t able to taste blind, but still want to comment on. Where applicable, we’ll note the restaurant or tasting event we tried the wine at. Since there is already a bias present in knowing the wines producer, varietal, and pricing, we’re not willing to give a star-rating to our tasting note. For wines that we really like, we’ll make an effort to put it in a blind flight at some point and give it a proper scoring.

Since we won’t be spitting, you’ll probably notice less-than-complete tasting notes which is fully dependent on our sobriety at the moment of tasting.
