As the Palette Matures!
So, as I sit here this Saturday morning wishing I was at my scheduled Wine Tasting in Ft. Worth that I couldn't make due to a "cranky" car... I started thinking about all the restaurants I went to over the past week and the experiences, food and wine that I had at each location.
But outside of thinking about each individual experience what I really began thinking about was the maturity of my wine tasting palette and how it has changed tremendously in just the past year. And that this change is good in the sense of identifying the different types of wines but somewhat problematic when I visit restaurants with mediocre or lesser quality wines.
I love trying new wines as often as possible and I also love bringing good but affordable wines into the mix of wines to drink and to share with other Wine Lovers. Some of the wines I would have drank and recommended as good but affordable wines in the past may not make my list for 2018 because of the palette maturation.
With all that being said, I've always prided myself on not being a Wine Snob even though I'm working on my Sommelier Certification as well as other Wine and Vintner Certifications and I've decided I'm still not a "Wine Snob" but I also can't drink or recommend bad wine.
Therefore, I'm looking forward to continuing to experience more Wines through my work and fun adventures but I will be sharing my true thoughts on the wines be they the best or not so great... which is a slightly new place for me to be in my Wine Journey.
And now off to get this day started... and I'm sure there will be some Wine Tasting Experiences later today...
Cheers to Winesharing!
