Welcome, Tara. You will definitely learn a lot here, but you already know how to tell the difference. If you like it, it is good. If you don't like it, it is not good.
That may sound stupid, but in 4 decades of trying/tasting/drinking wines, it is the most reliable metric that I have discovered.
What normally happens to most of us is that the more we try, the more we find that we like. Please keep an open mind about every wine you try. And please keep us up to date on your adventures.
