This is self-serving, but so what? I’m a proponent of saving one’s notes for several reasons and that’s why Snooth works the way it does, but that does not obviate the point here.
By sharing your tasting notes, you not only save the information for yourself, but also share your impressions with other like-minded folks, allowing them to get a better idea of what a wine is like before buying or drinking it. Perhaps you might even find drinking buddies along the way!
By recording what you like about a wine and then comparing one note to others you’ve written, you can begin to see patterns emerge- patterns that can help guide you towards other wines that you probably will enjoy. It’s also fascinating and revealing to watch your palate evolve!
