Sorry. I'll stop rhyming now. Ahem.
A friend posted this on Facebook and The Wine Bar itself says to share like wildfire, so here I am sharing with all you fine people.
This little graphic details several types of wine by name and where they fall on the scale of bold to light and fruity to earthy.
Who knew that mathematically-familiar x and y axes would be so useful to plot out the finer points of one of the finer beverages we enjoy?
I learned by browsing their website that The Wine Bar is very sharp to point out that "you don't need a master's degree to enjoy wine." (And even if you do have a master's, well, you shouldn't feel silly about not knowing jack about wine... except for that little bit you absorbed on the wine country tour you took last summer while visiting San Francisco... like me.) They also offer pairings for snacks with wine and recipes with wine.
I like them already. Maybe next time I'm in New York, I'll see if my friend will take me to their leader.
