qwerty, trust me on this one, there is one important question in wine, do you like it period. Do not worry about what others like. To learn you have to drink it, and remember what you like and don't that is how you build
Pale, acid is the second most important thing in wine after fruit. acid is what makes wine and food work together. Look at the words most food friendly wines; Champagne, riesling, pinot noir, they are all high in acid. you can feel acid in a wine by how it makes you salavate. Good sauvignon blanc, Chablis, Champagne, Pinot Noir, sangieovase, Rielsing all have high acid.
Fruit = flacor
acid= food compatabilty
this is the most basic aspect of flavor profile in wines.
