Here, Kermit Lynch assures a complete new new release of readers—as good as his dependable fans—that discussions approximately wine needn't concentration so stringently on "the pH, the oak, the physique, the finish," yet quite at the "gaiety" of how "the tart fruit perfume[s] the palate and the brain."
