  2. Im not experienced at all when it comes to wine tasting and wouldnt know a good wine from any other. I love everything that has to do with wine though. The art, the vineyards, the process of makeing and aging is all fascinating to my husband and I. I was wondering if the most recent bottles of Chardonnay taste different from the first? Im very curious as to what that taste was like.
