Drink what you like. It's that simple. I can remember a few ah-ha moments back in the mid-90's that had me checking back labels for certain importers and front labels for certain regions all the sudden while shopping for new wines - I liked. It happens. Suddenly my palate changed from big bold Bordeaux style wines into more elegant and feminine wines from Burgundy and California's Sonoma County. Though I still enjoy the occasional glass of very well made Cabernet Sauvignon, I branched out years ago due to an open mind and crazy curiosity to learn more about wine and wine regions.
Sometime in 2002 or 2003 I was giving a bottle of 1997 Williams Seylem Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir by my dear friends Jason and Liane LaBarba from Dallas. This bottle blew my mind and pretty much kick-started my passion for Sonoma County Pinot Noir. Fast forward 12 years later and I was representing one of the greatest family producers in Burgundy http://www.demontille.com/family.html. A thrilling ride through the wine supply chain indeed - full of ah-ha moments.
So my point is...drink what you like and drink what you don't know so much about - it just might change your life. It happened to me.
