Prof. Bainbridge on Aging Wines

Professor Bainbridge has a great blog dedicated to all things about wine. Usually, he grades the various wines he comes across, but recently he wrote an interesting and informative post on aging wine:

With few exceptions, most red wines in the $25 bottle range should be drunk young (1-3 years after release). At the $50 price point, you'll find some wines that deserve extended aging, but most (especially those from California, Australia, or, increasingly, Italy) are vinified for mid-term drinking. A top Zinfandel, for example, will be in prime drinking age at 4-8 years from the vintage date.

Like Instapundit says - read the whole thing!
