Assuming that you really know enough about a wine to dismiss it after one encounter is the biggest mistake we make with wine. There are so many things that can make a wine show poorly, from the six mistakes that lead up to this one to things like bad corks, dirty glassware and even a bad palate day. Hey, it happens to the best of us.
7 Mistakes Wine Drinkers Make
And how to avoid them
Assuming You Know
I know its disingenuous of me to tell you to give a wine a second chance once you’ve decided you don’t like it, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been pleasantly surprised by a wine on the second go ‘round.
