5.0 out of 5 stars What a great Idea!!! July 24 2008
By Kathleen M. Ranke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound
My daughter ordered one and loved it so much that I ordered four more to give as gifts to our wine loving friends. Everyone was so impressed and they all use them all the time!! The size is such that they can carry them in their purse and when they find a wine they like they can just write it down. Same applies if they find one they hate! The book appears to be well made and should hold up for a long time.

3.0 out of 5 stars good little book Nov. 25 2011
By Nicol Casarotto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It is a good little book to give the basics on wine. Other reviews on the spiral bound book indicated that you could take notes on wines tried out. On the kindle version this is not available, but otherwise its it is handy if paired with a notebook application, where you can take notes. I have done this when going to wine tasting, easier than carrying a pen & paper.

Chardonnay is golden, compared to the pale, rather greenish yellow of Riesling. Gamay is cherry red, Pinot Noir is a slightly pale vermilion, Zinfandel is purplish, and Cabernet Sauvignon a bluish-black. &quote;

&quote;
Red wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Zinfandel, derive their deep, rich color from pigments in red grape skins called anthocyanins. Grape skins also contain tannin, a substance that imparts a dry, somewhat bitter flavor in red wines not found in white wines. The longer grape juice stays in contact with the skins, the more tannic the wine becomes. &quote;
