weird wine notes

What is it with “wine notes” ?    i get so confused……what if i just want my red wine to taste of red wine ?

Last night in a  New York restaurant i was given a choice of 3 wines by the glass….the descriptions were : charcuterie, leather and earth , plums, peaches and wood  and last :  black pepper, tobacco and raspberry .

ummmmmmmmm………charcuterie tasting wine ? really ?   what about wine tasting like wine…..

I have never liked reading wine notes , but now every restaurant in America seems to enjoy torturing you with them. I just hope this trend goes no further than anglo saxon Europe , and in the meantime I am going to start compiling a list of Worst Wine Notes You Ever Read On A Wine List.
