Pocket Wine Guide

Wine is no simple thing. Sure you know the difference between Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, but there are a myriad of other more nuanced and complex wine questions. Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book 2012 was just released and is ready to answer some of your points of confusion. A conveniently pocket-sized wine encyclopedia, this book provides reviews of major brands and newly available brands, fully revised regional reviews, quick reference vintage charts, suggestions for food and wine pairings, and a guide on what to drink in 2012 and what to hold onto for a little longer. Also included is a brief decoding of wine jargon and a report on the 2010 and 2009 vintages. Available in stores and online, Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book 2012 is $15. Also available in eBook and smartphone app forms later this year.
