Wines with Character

wine reviews

Taste Drink Think is my approach to reviewing wines. I realize that no two people taste or smell the same thing, and that my (aroma and flavor) perceptions are subjective. For this reason, these wine reviews will be hedonistic versus empirical in nature. 

What interests me is the “character” of the wine and its relevance to the brand. Is the wine well structured and balanced, persistent, and complex? How is its freshness and texture?

What’s important here is what the winemaker is trying to achieve, and if it is emblematic and representative of their winemaking philosophy, brand style, and identity as a winemaker.
