Red Wine: Discovering, Exploring, Enjoying
Whether you are choosing a wine to accompany cheese or to add zest to tapas, Red Wine gives you the knowledge to select the right bottle with real confidence. Inspirational young wine writer Jonathan Ray explores the great wine varieties -- Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Syrah/Shiraz -- while also examining the other commonly used varieties, including Barbera, Gamay, Zinfandel, and Sangiovese. For each variety he describes its flavor and characteristics and how it is used by wine-makers throughout the world. Fortified red wines, including Madeira and Port, are also expertly sampled.
