Woman on Wine

with Amy Reiley

It’s proven that women are more sensitive than men to the subtleties of taste.  They also tend to give more provocative, enticing descriptions of wine. That’s why we have women do our wine writing.

California Cabernet Sauvignon Recommendations

In Celebration of California Cabernet Sauvignon

Woman on Wine with Amy Reiley Inspired by another assignment from Gayot.com, I’m going to do something that I’ve never done before in the context of my Woman on Wine column: talk about Cabernet Sauvignon.
