That's actually not bad.  It would serve as a good cheat sheet if you were going out with people who knew their wines.

Speaking of wine appreciation, I highly recommend a course such as Understanding Wine (I think) at the Wine Centre.  Definitely a good 6 week course with 3 hour weekly classes.  You almost drink enough that you shouldn't drive :o

I also think a wine appreciation course is not something you should do just once.  I went to a class and learned a lot, but there was still a lot I didn't quite catch.  I was able to go away and think about wine differently, but there is still so much more that I can learn.  So now that I've gone away and tried wines and assessed them using the knowledge from the course, I'm ready to go back and learn again what I didn't quite catch the first time.

Recently the Court of Master Sommeliers welcomed four new members; A mighty number when you consider the grueling fact that only 200 people have passed since the exam’s inception 40 years ago in the UK. The Master Sommelier’s Diploma exam is the world’s most challenging wine examination, period.

I love me some wine tasting, but christ... :eek:
