Wine Words : Learn the Language of Wine

What does it mean when wine is called full-bodied, vibrant, oaky, or tannic? What elements in wine inspire these words and the other terms commonly used to describe wine? Take a virtual trip around the world of wine with me. From the terminology of basic wine growing and winemaking techniques to an explanation of what the French call terroir (the unique influences of the place of origin on the wine in your glass), I will cover all the important descriptors while you sample wines chosen specifically to help you to put those words to use in describing the wine you are tasting.
Not only will you approach a wine list with more confidence but your ability to convey your taste preferences to sommeliers and wine sellers will result in the selection of a more enjoyable bottle every time!
