ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Oenophiles know: Matt Kramer is one of the world's most distinguished and insightful writers on wine. Author of the classic book Making Sense of Wine, Kramer has written about the subject for 32 years-and his full-page column in Wine Spectator has appeared in every issue for the last 14 years. The time is ripe for a retrospective, and here it is, covering topics from terroir to glassware to the various grapes and regions and personalities. Most of the essays are drawn from his work in Wine Spectator and The New York Sun, along with excerpts from his books.
The material remains fresh, vibrant, and compulsively readable.(Publisher). Very good / very good. Item #10359
