5 easy tips to make you a better drinker!
Stop being so absolute
This is a fluid world, no pun intend though that was in fact a pretty good pun. Not only do wines change from year to year, or region to region, i.e. not all Napa Cabernets are the same so don't get stuck on loving Napa Cabernets, but your palate also is going to change.
Here's the deal, your palate will go through a rough evolution, or not. But if it's anything like my palate and those of many of my friends you're first attracted to rather simple, easy to understand and easy to drink wines. Then you go through a power phase where bigger is in fact better. That in turn leads to a palate fatigue phase where you search for wines that offer more complexity and depth yet retain the drinkability of the first wines you enjoyed, and in the end you find yourself liking a broad range of wines, understanding that each has its moment, but you certainly become comfortable with the idea that price and quality are not so closely related and drinkability ultimately beats out intensity when it come to simply enjoying wine.
