Interesting piece from Medium. As a blissfully indiscriminate wino, I would have to agree. :-) I don't happen to like Chardonnay, does that mean my palate is "wrong"?? Of course not. It just means I should drink Viognier, or Riesling, or Pinot Grigio instead. Or Symphony. Mmmm, Symphony.

Funny also how the answer to any "is this wine good" type question often involves a wine that costs extra. That couldn't be a coincidence, could it? ;)
