The Last Bulwark

If you like wine and you like the internets, you probably read Tom Wark's blog already.

If not, please start here. A kindred spirit.

Recent notables:
  • Loosen Bros. "Dr. L" Mosel Riesling 2007: Aha, the solution to the Willi Schaefer dilemma posed in the last notes. Cold steel with peachy typicity, near-perfect sugar/acid balance, all comfortably under $15.
  • Hogue Cellars Cabernet-Merlot 2004: Inky and viscous. Dark berries adorn a curvy profile with toasty caramel that will undoubtedly scare some away, but is just fine by me. Not much in the way of tannins, but in fairness it's four years old.
