Wine Speak Excess

We always struggle with how to describe our wines. We often have a group of friends over to drink wine and tell us what they think and then Tracey takes up the difficult task of writing the notes (Writing Wine Notes).

Anyway, the results are sometimes a bit over the top. Serious Eats held a contest for the most over the top description. The comments are pretty funny though I don’t agree with all of them. Bacon Fat and wet slate are two examples that I think are very accurate descriptors that others think are mere pretentious.
