What's there in Wine?

Yep, I tasted wine today - my first ever stint with alcoholic drinks. My friend and I had a great three course meal with wine in Mughalai restaurant here. I had a special crush towards wine for long time. Recently I got inspiration to taste wines after reading an article in 'Business Today' supplement about wine tasting experiences and different wines available in India. Tasted Grover wineyards 'La Reserve' red wine; this product has won many accolades and fans worldwide and considered as 'the best new world's red wine'.

My first experience with tasting wine isn't that great. I had wine with chicken tikka, Tikka tasted better than wine!
It was tasting more like 'Listerine' the popular mouth wash.
Do you guys remember the volumetrics analysis we did during our school days in chemistry labs? Have you ever had experience of tasting the chemical liquids accidentaly while sucking through the pipette? The wine was tasting like that dude.
I was complaining about the taste to my fren all the while, poor soul!
I took more than two hours to drink a cup of wine. Good we didn't buy one bottle! I would have taken ages to finish it off!

One good thing: I understood the philosphy in the lyrics of Hotel California song for the first time today. May be wine made me a philospher ;)
I love this song. Lyrics are here.

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
’relax,’ said the night man,
We are programmed to receive.
You can checkout any time you like,
But you can never leave!

Good உவமை. Now I know what example you would give when you taste heroin! >:O)

> God created wine and women, so that man could atleast own one.

Man created wine so that he can own it when he looses trust with God & women. >:O)

It is a pity you did not have a good first experience with wine... but then enjoying wine is all about knowing how to enjoy it, if someone explains to you how to go about looking beyond the "Listerine" like flavours to you, I am sure you will enjoy it. :-).
By the way, start with a white wine like a Chenin Blanc or a Sauvignon Blanc. What you chose was certainly not a wine for a first attempt at drinking wine.
