I’m not one. I have friends who are. They swirl and sniff like they are
lost in the woods. They swish like mouthwash lovers making sure the
vino coats each inch of their mouths only to sip once again for the
perfect taste. My friend, ( who shall not be named) is the cutest cork
dork. She’s very knowledgable about wine and I used to feel a bit
intimidated when she opened a bottle of her favorite zinfandel. Then
I figured out that I like to enjoy wine, and she likes to analyze it
before enjoying it. Like sports…. some people like the spectacle of the
game and some like the technicality and nuances of each play.
It’s a personal choice and personal fun. No rights and wrongs. Just
the enjoyment of the beverage and the story created as you spend time
time with your friends and learn as you go. See you out on the
Wine Road. I may bring my dear cork dork with me so she’ll be the one
in the sunglasses.
