It's not easy being a wine newbie (or an intermediate or even, I would guess, an expert). There's all that vocabulary (what the heck is tannin? Aroma? Terroir? Seiously?), then you need to hold a glass the glass correctly (after choosing the right glass!). This is just to get the wine into your mouth, which may or may not have been decanted, stored at the correct temperature and humidity, SERVED at the right temperature, and poured not too early or late in its bottle life. Whew.
Here's a handy dandy infographic that is really helpful to all wine beginners. Definitely something to share when you need a simple way to explain this not so simple hobby (job? obsession?).
