“Blank Slate” – Wine tasting journal and a freshly opened bottle – #photo #wine @RodneyStrong #shadow #sunset #CabernetSauvignon #California


Several years ago my girlfriend and I began keeping a journal of all the wines we try.

It’s not very professional or scientific – it wouldn’t impress a sommelier, but I find it very rewarding to be able to look back on several years worth of bottles and the meals and experiences they were paired with.

A while back a read a statistic that said 95% of the wine sold by the LCBO is consumed within two hours of purchase. And, in my opinion, likely forgotten within three.

To me this is a fun way to remember.
