Mike Steinberger? Pretty entertaining writer regarding wine. I've linked you to a previous article where he discusses writing about wine and the terminology. Here is another link to a series of Slate.com articles and here he discusses the physiology of the oenophile—what is taste and what it means to be a supertaster. Bon appetit!
