"Usually, I feel as though reading about wine instead of drinking it is a bit like going to the Playboy mansion bound, gagged and blindfolded. But that's never been the case for Tyler Colman's writing, whether it's his books or his blog. This is fun, inspiring stuff that'll make you excited about wine, not send you running, screaming from it."-- Eric Arnold, author of First Big Crush: The Down and Dirty on Making Great Wine Down Under
"Here is an approach to wine sure to open a lot of people's eyes to a lot of pleasure. It replaces the numerical scoring system with some strongly flavored common sense. And it answers the question: what is the best way to enjoy wine."-- Kermit Lynch, wine importer and author of Adventures on the Wine Route and Inspiring Thirst
"To me, nothing says 'summer' like a big, sweet, alcohol-rich glass of Amarone alongside a briny bowl of linguine and clams. I'm just kidding. That would be disgusting. This is Tyler Colman's point and it's a good one: Wine is all about place and context. Lots of books give you the 'whats' of wine, but this one gives you the 'whens,' 'wheres' and 'whys' as well."-- David Lynch, co-author of Vino Italiano and The Wine Snob's Dictionary
"A Year of Wine offers a unique way to enjoy and appreciate wine. As a world traveler I will follow Tyler Colman's advice next time I'm enjoying the sunset on the Caribbean coast of my native Venezuela or looking at the beautiful red roofs of Florence, Italy. Choosing the perfect wine for a special occasion is like selecting the perfect pitch to hit an RBI double with men in scoring position." -- Bobby Abreu, starting right fielder, New York Yankees
