Don't go for this one if you are a beginner, it's a bit confusing; I found the style inaccessible outside of the classroom setting. This book might work well for a group of people who used it as a text book for their own wine course, but as an at home read I found it difficult to follow. I also found Zraly's style to be a bit stuffy, especially in comparison to Oz Clarke who writes about wine with an understanding that different people experience wines differently. He gives you context. Zraly seems to be coming from the attitude that there is a correct and an incorrect in understanding wine, a rigidity that I do not personally value.

Michelle I agree. I thought it was oddly put together and Should of been structured differently. A lot of information to take in.
