A few weeks ago after going to my 2nd wine bar in the city, I suddenly decided I wanted to find out more about wine. Eventually I'm going to start going to more tastings in the spring/summer months in order to determine exactly where my palate lies. I know it will be more on the sweet side, but how sweet? How spicy?
These things never mattered all that much to me before, not even after seeing the wonderful scene in the movie "French Kiss" with Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline. Meg is asked to describe the wine she is drinking, and it's a very evocative, hypnotic scene. Made me think of wine in a totally different light. Yet even still, it wasn't enough to get me to care what all the flavors were and how the contributed to the enjoyment of drinking a fine merlot or chardonnay.
So today I'd like to know:
What is your favorite wine(s) - and if possible describe it as much as possible. Red or white? Dry or...not dry?
Why do you like it so much?
