Red Wine: Discovering, Exploring, Enjoying
There's never been a better time to explore the world of red wine. More wines are being produced in more far-flung locations, and they're of higher quality and greater variety than ever before-and at more affordable prices. We've never had it so good. But if you don't know your Merlot from your Morgon or your Barolo from you Bordeaux, the huge choice of bottles at the liquor store or supermarket can be daunting. With this invaluable little book you'll soon be able to decipher labels and select wines to suit your taste and needs. As Red Wine expertly shows, the place to start is with the grapes themselves. Author Jonathan Ray considers all the important varieties, from the fresh and fruity Gamay to the mighty Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. You'll discover where specific grapes are grown and understand their unique characteristics, quirks, and qualities. Red Wine also shows you the best ways to store, serve, and tate wine. You'll even learn how to tackle a restaurant wine list. Knowing what to expect from a bottle of wine adds immensely to its enjoyment. With Red Wine in hand, you'll soon find yourself able to approach any bottle with total confidence.
