Palate Changers?

After a stint of drinking Sauvignon Blanc variations, Bordeaux Blanc, Sancerre, and Aussie versions, I feel like I have hit a wall. All my local reds now taste too..... Too fruity, too alcoholic, too sweet. Even some of my whites, Viogners, and Marsannes. Many are like low acid versions of orange juice, They go down easy enough but something is missing. I have cancelled all my wine clubs and am holding off on new purchases while I re-access.

Can drinking too much of one type of wine mess with your perception of others? Or perhaps drinking so much dry, flinty SVB, I should have a Palate cleanser period. I do not deny the possibilty that i have just been buying poor wine.
