Alan Young Foreword by Miguel Torres This new and completely updated edition, by one of the wine world’s greatest authorities, sets out to teach you that wine, like anything else that gives us pleasure, can be enjoyed more fully by those who have taken the trouble to learn something about it, and who have tried to develop their individual sensory systems. The human sensory system, which includes sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing, can be trained, just as our minds or muscles can be trained. In fact, a high level of assessment skill is within reach of the average wine lover. With the tools given in this book, wine’s myriad sensory cues of quality become discernible, and the distinct and deep pleasure of wine accessible. “There is no mystique about this, regardless of what the snobs and poseurs say.”—Alan Young “Brilliant…an underrated book from an Australian who has clearly given an exceptional amount of thought to the process of tasting wine. This classic has remained undiscovered by much of the world’s wine press.” —Robert Parker, Jr. “The Ultimate Wine Tasting Book.” —The Sunday Telegraph, London SKU#7644 Paperback, 8x101/2 inches, 201 pp, full color illustrations, charts and graphs $29.95 ISBN10: 1-891267-03-5 ISBN13: 978-1-891267-03-1
