I think that texture in everything is important. I think wine's texture -- some people like these rich, round wines, and they don't like these lean, sharp wines, so for them it might be the primary. People who are novices in wine or only casual drinkers, they actually primarily go by texture. In the United States, they primarily prefer round-textured wines that have no sharp edges, and smoothness, whereas a European palate likes a little more acidity, likes more crispness and sharpness. They prefer it. So those are cultural preferences that I have observed. Texture is very important, but most people don't actually articulate texture when they talk about wine. They don't think about it.
Is there a vintage wine that you would love to try?
