Ryan, last year I met a Master Sommelier at a fun wine event in St. Louis. We chatted with him for a while — having a great time and learning a lot. My girlfriend then asked a question, something like “What is the one thing we should know about wine that will increase our enjoyment?” He smiled, you could tell that he got this question a lot. His response is one of my favorite quotes of all time. “Remember this. IT’S JUST F — — -G GRAPE JUICE THAT’S STARTING TO ROT! Drink what you like! As for me, I like this one.” (A $40 cab from Paso Robles that was on the low-end of the price range that evening.) Lesson learned.
