We've all been there. You've placed your dinner order in the nice restaurant you've been meaning to take that special someone to. You asked for the second most expensive bottle of red on the menu. The waiter arrives, "Splonks!" off the cork and pours you a sample. You sip it, searching for words other than "Yes, this is definitely wine. Red wine".

Never fear. Your ability to articulate an opinion on wine is about to be drastically improved (then seriously flawed again, as you drink more of it). This chart, designed by the vino boffins of Wine Folly, provides descriptors on just about every aspect of wine you can imagine - from body and style to herb and flower.

Pass us a bottle of tinto, we feel like doing some learning.
