A Consumer Friendly Approach to Wine

In September, Wine Line had its sixth birthday. The editor and I opened a 6-year-old cabernet sauvignon to celebrate. The wine was wonderful. It had evolved gracefully and had developed a beautiful bouquet. I realized that in six years of writing this column I’d never mentioned the term bouquet. I apologize, but bouquet (see note below) can be one of those “winey” terms that turn people off. My goal is to turn people on to wine and that’s why I started writing this column. I try to stay true to my mission statement, which is: You should enjoy wine, keep it simple, avoid pinkie-waving wine snobs, trust your palate and drink what you like.
