Lord knows I tried. Red wine is supposed to be good for you. Antioxidants and all that. So my latest attempt included testing (not all at once...) a Merlot, a Malbec, a Siraz (sp?), a Cab...and a couple of whites that tasted suspiciously like kerosene or the dragster fuel we used to mix out of grain alcohol and nitro methane. No, I haven't tasted kerosene or dragster fuel--just have this metaphysical connection from yon times of yore. Anyway...except for one of the Malbecs (this was several labels of each variety over the past three or four months)--it all tastes the same. Admitting that my palate may be made of some ceramic byproduct, I nevertheless surrender. I'm going back to beer.
