I read with interest the review of Santé written by David Forbes in the July 8 Xpress. The article certainly whetted my appetite to experience this apparently lovely little wine bar. Although it was well-written and offered an enthusiastic endorsement of Santé, I must say that the use of the term "aftertaste" when referring to a wine's "finish" revealed that the author of the article may not understand the nuances of the art of wine tasting and therefore may not have the credibility to be reviewing an establishment for its quality of wines. The term "aftertaste" is usually reserved for things like cough medicine and perhaps certain foods — definitely not for wine.
Despite this, I look forward to a visit to Santé and am certain that I will discover many wines with a wonderful "finish."
