Dusting Off The Tasting Notebook

June 19th was a long time ago.

That was the last time I penned a blog post.

Who’s to blame? What’s to blame? What were you doing? How Come?

Some important questions that may come from once thing and many things.  But for now, I will pin it as this — palate fatigue, palate malaise, palate block, palate disenchantment.

No matter what wine I tasted, except for a few, none of them had that spark.  They all kinda seemed to be similar with nothing distinctively different.  No matter what region the wine was from — Long Island or Willamette Valley or Mendocino or Loire..it just did not get me going.  I needed jumper cables for my dead battery.

However, some things changed with my palate and I plan on sharing those with you over the next few weeks.  I worked out those kinks, gave my palate almost a month off and over the last week or so, things started to come around.

Fear not, I am back and Long Island is in my sights.
