Well I don't say AH exactly but this article is a good introduction to the 'art' of the wine tasting. Basically slurp, gargle and spit - which is a great name for a team of solicitors!

"To get as much information about a wine, you need to look, smell, taste and feel a wine - try it on if you like. Sure, the information you get makes more sense if you know what you're looking for, but you can only start looking for what you want when you know what you don't. So hide any inhibitions, open up and say ah.

At least there's one thing about the wine you're sure to get right, that is, if the wine is made from a red or white grape. If you're stumped at this early stage, I'm afraid this is gonna be a bit of a challenge..."
