Nicely done if a bit bare bones. Keep your iPhone dry and use this to take note instead !
Author: Dave Selden of BS Brewing, an extreme home brewing and food group, in where else, Portland, Oregon
Publisher: 33 Books Portland, Oregon
Type: Tasting Notebook
Binding: Softcover, 16 pages, 32mo, 100 % recycled paper and Soy ink ( Wine colored ink infused with wine detailed on back)
Notes: A very handy and well laid out little journal/notebook with a number of very useful templates both the usual demographics, but also a glossary on some wine terms ( to list them all would be a large book by itself) , entries for origin, vintage, where sampled, along with a color meter and flavor wheel. A thoughtful field note/reference guide ( for yourself or whoever you care to share it with) to record impressions – especially if you are doing a tasting somewhere and want to keep all the details straight without getting that iPhone wet. Simple, easy to read and use, very handy for anyone trying to figure it out what they had ( and importantly what vintage if same winery) . Part of a series ( that I wholly recommend) that includes : 33 Bottles of Beer, 33 Pieces of Cheese, 33 pieces of Chocolate, 33 Cigars Tasting Notebook, and 33 Drams of Whiskey, , that should allow the diligent if self indulgent to map, graph, record, and document their explorations of these various substances in a precise and consistent way for themselves and for posterity – or at least their next of kin
Final Thoughts: A well made and useful journal/research notebook for less than the cost just about any glass of when not at home – never mind a bottle! Helps avoid those expensive mistakes. Buy the book direct form the publishes and save some many – the amazon store want too much.
A well laid out and easy to navigate website that allows you to buy any or all the books (at a discount) along with links to his other pursuits. Well worth visiting for a few minutes or an afternoon.
