|Abstract||THE QUESTION: I am asking a very specific question: what good is knowledge about wine when it comes to enjoying the experience of tasting a wine? Can knowledge, about wine in general or about the specific wine you’re drinking, help you enjoy that wine? Can such knowledge even make the wine taste better? Assuming you have a basic liking for wine, have a normal sensitivity to aromas and flavors, and know how to expose the qualities of a wine to the responsiveness of your senses, how, if at all, can knowledge about a particular wine affect your enjoyment of it? Can it enhance your pleasure or even, on occasion, detract from it? Or, rather, does it provide its own kind of pleasure, cognitive or even intellectual pleasure, distinct from the pleasure of tasting?|
