Top 10 Wine Buzz Words to Up Your Wine Cred

Slide 2 of 10

Fruit Bomb

Once a simple descriptor for a popular, fruit-driven style of New World wine, today this term is usually used as a pejorative to describe an overblown wine that lacks subtlety or structure. But a fruit bomb can also be a big, lush wine that's balanced and delicious, like the 2008 Torbreck Barossa Valley Woodcutter's Shiraz.

Pairing: Bobby Flay's delicious pork chops with a nectarine relish, perfect with a flamboyant Australian Shiraz.
