This is a great user friendly book. I love kettle chips, but who knew to open a bottle of riesling to enjoy with them--Jaclyn apparently. Great advise, interesting reading, now I know what to do for thanksgiving dinner.

This is a good example between a short article made for a Magazine and a book which is much more complicated to draw.
If you look at the "definition of Oxidized wine ... it smell like Sherry or vinegar" Sherry YES, vinegar rarely smell in recent year of modern wine. Did reduction could be more important to describe?

Another widely repeated miss information "Your different taste buds are located on varying parts of your tongue". No, we carry several thousands of buds all over the tong. "Via small openings in the tongue epithelium, called taste pores, parts of the food dissolved in saliva come into contact with taste receptors. The taste receptor cells send information detected by clusters of various receptors and ion channels to the gustatory areas of the brain via the seventh, ninth and tenth cranial nerves." Wikipedia
Let's remember this books is about "pairing wine & food" by professional journalist and Master Sommelier.

Furthermore, the chapter 4 on White Wine's Flavor Profiles include "Rosy-Cheeked Wines".
How can someone mix White wine and Rosés pairing???
In the same chapter, Definition of Malolactic fermentation: "All red wine got through malolactic fermentation." This assertion is falls.

Let's Get Pairing.
Authors start with Riesling.
Why? It's the most wine sold in US? Or they start in alphabetical order? Who knows?
No mention of Petroleum flavor of many Riesling which did not pair very well with cheese.

Best from = Germany; Alsace, Washington, New York, Australia without making a mention as German Riesling are often so sweet as they have their specific classification labeled on front of the bottle like Riesling Kabinett. For a book of Pairing expert it would be a good advise to mention it.
