Learn Wine With Manga

Eve, who works with kybecca and blogs here recently sent me this fantastic slide-show about a Manga series for grown-ups that teaches them about wine. As always with the Japanese it takes an unusual and delightful slant.
"It's powerful," Shizuku says of a 2001 Bordeaux, suddenly overwhelmed with images of a turntable, guitars and Freddie Mercury. "But it also has a meltingly sweet taste, with an acidic aftertaste that catches you by surprise. It's like the voice of Queen's lead vocalist, sweet and husky, enveloped in thick guitar riffs and heavy drums."

Actually this Manga character is considered to be the most influential wine critic in the world. The circulation of this manga is about 5 times larger than Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate.
