Unorthodox Wine Lover's Guide 11 Jan 2007
By Gordon A. Sinclair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the easiest and funniest writer about wine west of the Hudson! She has been hanging around grapes and writing for the Rocky Mountain News longer than most wine writers and has stomped on grapes and a few inflated heads of others who talk and write about wine. This is a 200 page booklet that will satisfy those just beginning and even those who think they are aficionados! An example of her wit and not taking any of the business of wine too seriously is her chapter (I think all are articles which have appeared in the News) on dessert wines: "Just Desserts, Cressing The Bellybutton." You may think this review sounds like I know Jennifer Rosen, but I have never met her. But, I have been in the high-end restaurant business in Chicago and Florida for 25 years, and know a good thing when I read it!

Rosen hits the spot again. 17 Sep 2006
By Elliot Essman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Superbly entertaining; you didn't know more ink could be spilled on wine, but I guess there is always a new insight to add to the cellar. Rosen has really uncorked on this one. It's actually a shame she has to confine her brilliance to a book instead of the encyclopedia she truly needs. Perhaps one day.

I am translating choice morsels of this into actual purchases (now that I finally have space for a cellar). Thanks for the confidence.

The Neanderthal speaks 20 Oct 2006
By Ted E. Dewald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am very flattered to be the Neanderthal she cites in her introduction so I have my bias. I have been reading her columns since they began. She taught me not be afraid to try new wines and to find wines that I like, which is the point of drinking wine. But she keeps my interest - week after week and through two books - with her incredibly witty, funny and instructive style. She's that teacher you had whose class you looked forward to because she made it fun and interesting. Her irreverence for wine snobbery equals her reverence for the wine. Her latest book has all the wit and wisdom in a very organized flow from front to back. You'll learn, but most importantly, you'll leave her pages unafraid of wine. I highly recommend the book and the column.
