January was AWESOME
Wed 3rd Feb, 2010 - by Lachie
 
A month's worth of wine.

As I start to write this post, it occurs to me that the entire front page of this site is filled with photos and text devoted to wine. I feel I should make sure our reader(s) know, that we're not turning into a wine site. It's just that I haven't been doing a lot of dining out recently, and it's been a little while since we've had the time to podcast. Two situations I'd like to remedy in the not too distant future.

Now however, I'd like to introduce you to the topic of this post. The month of January:


What can I say? It's been a good month.

So as listeners/readers/twitter followers will know, I'm trying to keep track of every wine I drink this year. What you see above is my record of January's labels. I also have brief tasting notes in physical and electronic formats. So far I think I'm doing okay.

There are, of course, problems with keeping track in this way. One is that I'm obviously a wine wanker, but I'm a quite low talent wine wanker. I flatter myself to think I have a reasonable palate, but don't have the knowledge or vocabulary to adequately describe a wine to someone else. For example, a few gems from my January tasting notes include:
"meh",
"Okay", and
"Good, but not THAT good"
You get the idea, but that's one of the points of my trying to keep track. I'm hoping that by doing so, I actually think about the wine a bit more.

Anyway, if anyone has any questions about wines you see in the montage, I'll do my best to respond with more meaningful comments than the ones I've shown above. And if anyone has any suggestions of bottles that February should contain, I'm listening.
