Today's wine column is my last for the Boston Globe. In it I reflect a bit on what has and hasn't changed in the fifteen years I've been writing the column. I offer heartfelt thanks to readers who have followed my writing over the years.
It's always been my view that cultivating a certain sensibility toward wine is a better path to a more satisfying drinking experience than being pointed to specific bottles. And while it may be somewhat limiting to be exposed to a single perspective, it also strikes me that one consistent viewpoint can be preferable to the variety of opinions that emanate from a tasting panel or committee -- often conflicting and rarely offering any clear direction.
