New book a "must have" for every wine enthusiast
"Lifted aromas of spicy oak." "Nuances of black fruits against a backbone of dusty tannins." "A pretty little wine, clean and delicate."
Winespeak -- it's an arcane language that only the initiated can decipher. But that is about to change, thanks to The Frugal Oenophile's Lexicon of Wine Tasting Terms, a compendium of more than 650 terms and definitions specific to the language of wine. Compiled and edited by wine writer Richard Best (a.k.a. The Frugal Oenophile), the lexicon reveals the technical language behind wine and its appreciation. Did you know that there are five methods of producing sparkling wine? Or that some grape growers discard half their crop long before it ripens? Find out the how and why of virtually every winemaking concept and how they apply to the wine experience.
Written in plain language and in dictionary format, this is one book that gives wine lovers what they need most: a Rosetta stone of wine language. It's an indispensable reference that no wine lover or student of wine should be without!
