Wine is often regarded as one of man’s greatest accomplishments. A pinnacle of craft that requires knowledge of soil, weather, geography, geology, grapes, fermentation, and time. You can use the word “terroir” in reference to it, and impress (and perplex) everyone around you. It makes you wait a painstakingly long time before the end results, and then it is subjected to intense scrutiny (using intimidating terms like chewy, earthy, fleshy and jammy). And hopefully, after all of this, it provides “unparalleled” rewards to the human palette.
