What tips does Greg Majors have for those new to wine?

Drink and taste and drink and taste. Most importantly, if you really want to take it seriously, do a lot of reading and do a lot of talking. Talk through it with people. I always get, “Well, I can’t taste that,” or “I don’t understand where you’re getting those aromatics or those flavors,” or “How do you do that?” You really do it by talking out wines you taste. Wine is very subjective — I may get something and you may get something different. It’s important to record what you taste, read about it and then talk about it.
