What are we really ordering when we order some of the most commonly requested grape varieties and regions in the world of wine?
I don't get to work behind a bar much these days, but when I did, I heard a lot of this when I asked what people liked: 'Cabernet or Pinot,' 'Sancerre or Sauvignon Blanc.'And these are useful categories, actually! Just . . . not necessarily because of what it says on the tin.
We're going to drink three wines I love that can teach us what we're actually asking for when we order, get to know our palate, and discover some tricks and paths to finding value, surprise, and delight.
