Okay, so how much have you been boozing it up at ~CAV~? Hopefully quite a bit. For those of you who are perhaps a little intimidated by the monster list there (you shouldn't be—everyone is rather helpful), perhaps a wine tasting basics class is what you need? You'll definitely be in good hands. Here's the write-up from their monthly wine classes and tastings newsletter:

Wine Tasting: basics, basics, basics - What are the differences between acid and tannin, fruity and sweet, old world and new world? What does full-bodied mean? This class will cover all the basic precepts of wine tasting and what you need to know in order to be able to figure out what you like and how to describe a wine. No experience required. (This class will be taught by General Manager, Tadd Cortell.)
