Want to do more than just take a pretend sniff, sip and then say, “I like it, it’s sweet;” or “It’s dry...”
The current issue (Oct. 31) of the Wine Spectator has a good section on how to taste wine. It will help you on your way to being able to evaluate what you have in your glass. The more wines you taste, the more you will appreciate what you’re drinking. But BEWARE–the more you appreciate what you’re drinking, the more you will spend in search of the next remarkable wine!
Don’t say I didn’t warn you! Now raise a glass and do it with some finesse! :)
