My third novel, Double Down, is now available for purchase on Amazon.

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.
