I just don't "get" wine. I can drink it, and I do. But I can't seem to enjoy it like some do. I read wine labels and wine books, and they all refer to "nutty, fruity, flavors". I have had lots of different price wines and dry, red, merlos, etc., but none taste as good to me as a glass of ice tea or lemonaid. We have a wine expert (wrote a book on wine) in the family, but his selections don't excite me either. My wife says that I have dead taste buds from eating too much hot pepper. Maybe so.
