Out of 170 Master Sommeliers in the world, 105 of them are in the United States. Of those, only one lives in Ohio. So for someone pursuing this coveted accreditation in a state unknown beyond the Great Lakes for its wines, what reason is there to stay? According to Chris Dillman, Ohio is exactly the place for him to carve his own market where little currently exists.
A great medium bodied red. A nose of light rose petal and red fruit with a surprising butterscotch finish. The finish of the wine is what intrigued me most, it isn't sweet by any means, and the flavor of butterscotch is undetectable on the nose but bursts on the palate at the finish. I immediately fell in love with this wine after trying it and took home a bottle to Ohio from California. For Emma’s full review visit her blog, Dances with Wines.
