WINE SCHOOL with Eric Asimov, New York Times:

 Wine School, a monthly column, invites you to drink wine with Eric Asimov. In each installment, Mr. Asimov chooses a type of wine for you to try at home. As you try the wines, ask yourself these questions and post your responses in the comments section. At the end of the month, Mr. Asimov will address some of the points in your comments and answer questions in a follow-up column.
