At the risk of becoming snobbish, I will now make my descent into the world of wine. This is a thread for those who are wine connoisseurs, enthusiasts, dabblers, or if you're like me and simply want to start a true exploration into wine itself. Feel free to post opinions about different wines, or just tell us what you're going to be trying next - or what you're having in the moment. If you have recommendations especially, I know I for one would like to hear them. I personally do not know too much about wine except for some basics, but I'm wanting to start refining my pallette. I also noticed that there are no wine threads that I can find, so either no one else is interested, or maybe one simply needed to be started. I personally have had my fair share of cheap to extravagant beer, and harsh to exquisite liquors, but I have lost my appetite for most of it, save for a few. Wine has such a variety, plus it holds a middle ground for alcohol content - both of which have begun to appeal to me. So...what wine is on your mind?
