I used to drink wine fairly frequently, but not so much now.
The descriptions always seemed somewhat confusing to me.
Here is a NY Times article on how a particular wine critic describe how he uses words to describe wine flavors.
Some of it makes more sense to me now.

He describes 15 terms. His effort goes down well.

His lean article does not have too much length, a lot of structure and has depth, but not a lot of precision in my opinion.

Nice article. I note that the author is nephew of the wonderful science writer Isaac Asimov.

I was wondering about that.
