But I know nothing about wine.
It's one of those areas I'd like to know more about. I should know more about it. But I don't think that's going to happen. I suppose I just don't have the passion required for it.
Generally, I drink only Washington state wines. My thinking is that there is no way I can learn "the wine world" but if I know one little corner of it really well, that's all I need. There are two problems with this theory.
1) I don't know this one little corner really well.
2) It's not such a little corner.
So instead of arguing about which year produced the best Pinot Noir from the Walla Walla valley, I'll content myself with arguing about which is cooler -- the Death Star Playset or the Landspeeder.
Enophile may not yet make it into my profile. I'll continue to order Washington wines with confidence even though I have no idea what I'm doing. As long as I stay away from Boone's I can't do too much damage.
And isn't that what most people do, anyway?
