There is nothing worse than falling in love with a wine, and then forgetting what it was called (or even where it was produced), the next time you look for it at your local wine store. Whether you use a wine journal or a spiral notebook, when you taste something you enjoy, take a moment to note the producer, winery and your overall impression (aromas, flavors, finish, the food with which it was enjoyed.) And, don't forget the vintage if one is listed--some wines can vary greatly from year to year. If you prefer the high tech route, buy software for your PDA to store your wine preferences, or use your cell phone (the notepad feature, or even the voice recorder.)
