And More Again From The Wine Blogger’s Tasting: The Iron Palate Of Iron Chevsky!

The title of the post says it all: 

Ridge Tasting: Iron Chevsky vs. Robert Parker

I love it! Gary “Iron” Chevky took right to heart the paradigm of this particular tasting, a compare-and-contrast between our own respective palates (this being the gathering of Wine Bloggers that constituted the core attendees for the tasting), and that of Robert Parker, who recently reviewed a large crop of Ridge offerings.

(For some background information on the Wine Blogger’s Tasting, please click here, and for a run-down on the Parker reviews, please click here.)

I would like to offer a special thank you to Gary, because it was in tandem with him that discussions about this event really took shape, and I credit him immensely for generating the excitement that helped launch this unique tasting format. Cheers Iron Chevsky!

I encourage you to take a look at this post; the Iron man has done a really wonderful job of presenting both an objective picture of the event itself, and deploying a uniquely idiosyncratic perspective about the wines. Plus, his tasting notes are thorough, which makes this an excellent resource for contemporary notes on both yet-to-be-released wines, and back-vintage wines from the cellar.
