Being in hospitality, opening a bottle of wine for someone is always the highlight of my work shift. With an opportunity to provide a fancy shmancy service and ability to watch joy and passion glow from the wine taster's smile, what's not to be fascinated by?
Recently, I've turned into that giddy wine taster. Still learning the basics, my taste buds have been slow to keep up with my studies. Tonight I tasted the Chateau St Jean 2010 Merlot and became very excited when I found that my own wine tasting notes nearly mimicked those provided.
I'm excited to continue tasting and comparing notes with other's on this site and I hope to learn much from you all!
With much enthusiasm,

Welcome to Snooth, Felicia. It sounds like you have very good wine instincts. The most important thing I have learned about wine is drink what you enjoy- not everyone will like what you like. Enjoy your wine journey and welcome.

Let me add my welcome, Felicia.
I, of course, clicked on the link in OT's post, and smiled. When I first saw that movie, I was cheering about Miles' conviction. I've never really cared for Merlot as a varietal bottling. I have to say, though, "Sideways" may have been the best thing that could have happened to Merlot. The better producers have upped their game, and I find that I am buying a bit of Merlot, these days.
