This weekend is traditionally known as one of celebration -- even with that pesky working Monday coming along before the official parties of New Year's Eve. So what better time than now to show off some wine knowledge?
How do you know if a wine is good? When well-intentioned sommeliers like ourselves say, "If you like it, it's good," it's an infuriating answer, not to mention slightly patronizing. True, if you like it, go for it, but just like art, literature and automobiles, there are quantifiable measures to deciding if a wine is good or not.
