I’m learning new things every day about wine while researching for the book I’m working on called Uncorked. Here are a few examples:

A “dunb” wine refers to the lack of odor in a wine, though it may develop a pleasing odor in the future. Many Cabernet’Sauvignons, for example, are considered “dunb”. A “Numb ” wine ,on the other hand, has no odor or potential of developing a pleasing odor in the future.

European wines are named after their geogrpahic locations while non-European wines are named after different grape varities.

A feminine wine is wine that is more delicate than most. A masculine wine refers to a “big” or “full” wine.
