wine lingo

Slate has an article today titled "why wine writers talk that way," which pretty much describes the content of said article. It's a quick read, and interesting if you don't already know the answer. Even if you do know, there's a bit of history about the terms people used before the food based terms we use now you may find interesting.

I don't have much to add besides my recommendation for a book on the topic: Plain Talk About Fine Wine, by the creator of Silver Oak.
