Tasting Notes: 2017 Paso Creek

Updated: Feb 29

Do you remember my last post on wine? Neither do I. No excuses, I just dropped the ball. But here I am, a simple man, ready to share his simple wine tastings with you, if you will take me back.



Remember, I taste the wine first, then go back and compare my notes to the winemaker's notes and a few wine books I have laying around. Then I post them here for your pleasure.
