Wine Enthusiasts Guide iPhone App Review.

Now, I'm not much of a wine connoisseur, but the iPhone app from certainly provides me with the facts, figures and reviews to be able to pick up on some of the specifics of wines across the world. Wine Enthusiasts Guide is certainly the iPhone application to keep around to help you choose, evaluate and enjoy wine.

When you start up the app, you're taken straight to the wine guide screen. The app itself is divided into five screens, to set you on your path. You can search for a specific wine within set parameters, add a specific wine to your favorites list, choose to experience a true vintage taste or get references as wines in general.

The app's database has over 73,000 total reviews written up by authors of the Wine Enthusiast Magazine. With new reviews added each week, both for new releases as well as older, more select wine rarities, they currently have in their background over 113 wine styles, so the right wine bottle for you is simply a matter of searching.

Speaking of which, the search functionality that comes with the app is clearly well-thought-out and developed. You can search according to the winery name, price, rating, style, varietal or appellation to find the right wine for you in the database. Once you've selected your pick, head on to read the Wine Enthusiast Review and add the wine to your favorite list.

The review for each wine includes tasting notes and insights into its quality and character, so you'll know if the Pinot will go smoothly with your food order. With a few taps of the screen you're well on your way to savoring the best flavored specialty for the table.

On the Reference screen of the app, you're able to improve your knowledge of wine in general, or search for a specific term. Wine Enthusiasts Guide mentions over 1,400 terms that cover aspects of wine appreciation. One extra functionality of the Reference screen is the Wine101 crash course that includes 20 tutorials to help you refine your wine selecting skills whenever in the market place looking for a fresh new flavor or a vintage unique taste.

Wine Enthusiasts Guide proves to be a most useful tool for regular wine connoisseurs to use as a reference on the go. With the iPhone's 3G capabilities, staying connected will ensure that you're always reading the most up-to-date info on wines and wineries. The app is available for $4.99 which may appear to be a steep price for mainline consumers.
