My favorite wine blog
There are some people who are such engaging critics I will read every word they write, even if I have no interest in the subject matter.
The Los Angeles Times' Dan Neil is one of those. What do I care about cars as long as they have heated seats?
If you've never read anything of Neil's, I urge you to sample the columns he won a Pulitzer for.
But he's not the point of this entry. ...
I want instead to lead you to Nilay Gandhi's blog 750 mL. I'm a lot more interested in wine than cars, but I don't read his blog to get suggestions for what wines to buy. I read it for the pure pleasure of Gandhi's writing, which is lush, extravagant, over the top and sometimes hysterically funny. He takes wine descriptions, which often seem silly to me, farther than they've ever been taken before, and somehow he makes me believe them.
My thanks to Sean for first bringing 750 mL to my attention.
