7 More of the Most Annoying Wine Words

Posted: Updated:

Okay, so you guys got into the spirit with the first "Annoying Wine Words," and even called me out for my use of some of those wine words! I admit it, I am guilty as charged. After my last treatise, Snooth member Mlandry burned me for my use of "creamy."

I can break out the science texts and defend myself, or just go with it. So, today I'm gonna do a bit of navel-gazing and regale you with 7 annoying wine words that I abuse -- er, use. And folks, let me just add one thing: if this isn't fun, don't do it. I always say that about wine (whether it's drinking wine, talking wine, making fun of annoying wine words, or sharing wine) -- it's got to be fun, and if it ain't, move on. Nothing to see here anyway, except for 7 more annoying wine words.
