Smell My Cork

I don’t know crap about wine. People I know think that I do because I’ll say things like, “Pinot Noir, please.” or “Wow, that’s got a great nose.” But really, I can’t tell a great wine from out of the crowd. I’m just one of those people that likes wine and I know something is good when I taste it. Of course I have some of my favorites and I taste them a great deal. For virgin wine territory, I usually turn to the good folks at The Hidden Vine or Hotel Biron.

So, I started realizing that I don’t have one of those fancy tasting books or even any books about wine anywhere near me, I do have this site. For a bit, I was thinking, “Oh hey, why not start up a wine section, like I do with the tea reviews section?” Then, I thought the better of it because there a approximately 6,298,674 vintners in the world and there is no way I could arrange that in any fashion where it would make sense.

So, I decided to make use of this very nifty tagging feature that I have. That being the case, I am now bringing about Wine set of tags for whenever I feel pompous enough to extol the virtues of one wine or another. I’m not saying that these are going to be great reviews. I’m just saying that I’m going to talk about stuff that I like, which, when you get down to it, is what this site is really all about.
