Greetings from Big Sky Country Montana,
Yes, So grapes around here are a little bit more hardy and well, the vines do not tend to live long. However, I do have California (Bay Area) roots so I really enjoy a good wine. It might not be amusing to many experts out there, as I am primitive in wine terminology- yet, I have a knack for describing different elements about wine to a "T" on many occasions. My California friends say I'm usually right on, I just use hill billy language to describe the wine. This is fine with me. In the big picture I am but a novice in the wonderful world of red. My one big strong point is identifying fillers, nitrates, additives and added colors. My foe. I have feeling it is more common than many wine companies would like to share.
My biggest challenge, I have a hard time describing my favorite taste. I just know it when I taste it! I was in the Malibu area (up the canyon) a few years ago and man I was very impressed. I look forward to meeting friends here, and perhaps I can describe my tastes to someone who has a grasp on wine nuances and terminologies so that I can then make a mass 1,000 bottle order!
hello from Montana
