Wine, more about wine

Been drinking more.  My palate is slowly getting better but I still can't use words like "toasted almonds" or "hints of licorice" to describe wine. 

Willowcroft 2002 Cabernet Franc - round and tasty $16.  Of course I love this wine b/c I know the guy who owns the vineyard

Ravenswood 2003 Zinfandel - Lodi - much better than the Vinter's selection.  Better with food...and slightly chilled or else it seems "hot" from the alcohol.
