Top customer reviews
I pick a bottle and taste the wine before reading the specifics. I open the book to see if my tasting guesses are correct. And lastly,I visit the maker's website for an even more detailed taste information.
The graphic design is simple and concise. Easy to read format. Information is placed correctly in the page for easy access. You can enjoy browsing the contents of this book. I really look forward to a more detailed version in the future for intermediate or advanced tasters.
