I have a feeling this has been covered before so if there is a link, please to post it. Anyway, I am trying to develop a system to keep track of the wines I have had, which I have liked, price, etc. I am hindered by a few factors. The first is I am not sure how to interpret labels. I will give a car analogy: Honda is the make, Accord is the model. So my bottle of wine I have in front of me here says "Le Grand Noir" and under that "(Black Sheep)" and then chardonnary-viognier. France and 2004 are also on there, but I understand those. So what is the "make" or brand, what is the "model"? Is there a general way to tell?
Also, any suggestions for a wine diary, either an outline on paper or one online?
I am sure I am embarassing myself with these questions, but I want to understand finally!
