I ve done the courses, read the wines, savoured the wines, bought the wines, travelled the globe
And even though I try to expand my vocab,
I’m still reduced to black fruit, nice nose, citrusy ,pencil shavings, Im not getting anything on the nose.
Tasting…dark fruit , cherry, full, light, Powerful, austere, needs more time ( I think). Long finish, alcoholic in other words I’m getting p…ed.
Oh how I wish I was a poet of sorts am I alone in struggling to describe the wine I’m enjoying or should I join the heathens that like Greek mountain village wine produced by octaganarian Agnes Vinopelos trod in tripe vats with her bunion riddled trotters.
Or should I preserve and read in awe at the musings of Atkins, Robinson and Clarke for whom wine is to them is as Susie Dent is to linguistics.
Help I think the emporer is naked
