At Pulling The Cork we believe the best wine is the kind of wine you drink and the kind of wine you love. Sure, we review, taste and talk about wines but we know everyone's palate is different and unique. While we have tasted thousands of wines, and written tasting notes on most of them, getting multiple opinions and perspectives on a wine is key to a better and more comprehensive understanding of what the wine is all about. It's not as good as tasting and drinking it yourself but it's a decent substitute if you can't.
Our good friend (and future cohort on another wine project) Ryan Reichert (from the wine blog oe-no-phile) recently tasted and talked about the 2006 Cellers Can Blau Montsant we reviewed a short time ago.
We wanted to point you in the direction of his post so you can read his perspective on the same wine and consider it in context with our review back on July 10, 2009.
We think reading many reviews of a wine from diverse tasters of various experience levels is a great way to get a pretty good understanding of the wine. The best way, of course, is to taste and drink the wine yourself and drink wines of different varietals from many different places in the world. That is the best way to train your palate and learn about wine.
Taste, taste, taste!
