Often people have trouble pinpointing exactly what they are experiencing in a wine. Putting the scents and tastes into words can feel awkward at first. Embarrassed to be wrong or to sound stupid a lot of people hold back when approaching wine.
I suggest finding other ways to describe the wine. While browsing the web to satisfy my inner nerd I often find many a great wine-geek friendly sites.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Chateau Petrogasm puts a fun spin by using images as wine descriptions. http://www.chateaupetrogasm.
How about haiku? Maybe you remember writing them in middle school. These short poems offer a quick impression and leave a lot of room for creativity. The web site Red Wine Haiku http://redwinehaiku.blogspot.
The point is be creative and make your own rules. Wine is something everyone can enjoy and doesn’t always need to be coated in technical mumbo-jumbo.
