Normally this time of the month I put up a summary of all the wines I tasted and noted during the past month. Nearly all of those wines are documented at The Grand Crew.
I had a number of outstanding wines last month, but remarkably didn’t take notes on any of them. Why? They were all enjoyed with friends, and I don’t typically take notes when having wine out with my wife or with friends, as the experience of sharing wine with people you like always inflates how good the wine tastes. I typically take notes when drinking at home (usually with J), where we taste and compare our thoughts on the wine.
There’s a lesson there – drink wine with loved ones and friends, and the wine tastes better.
