Did I miss it or did you say exactly what is the significance of the legs? What do they tell you and what would you expect from a wine with no legs?
Wind Down with Wine
The legs are created by the difference in evaporation and surface tension between the alcohol and the water in the wine. Alcohol evaporates more quickly than water, as it does, the surface tension of the water pulls itself together to form the legs as it travels down the inside of the glass. Really, there is not much of significance to them, they mostly just look cool.

Thank you for this lesson. I love to drink red wine, but I didn't have the knowledge to judge a good wine. You have given me some valuable tips.

Thank you for an interesting lesson. Now I'm going to see how to open a bottle the proper way....not my way.

Pilots say, "Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing". I won't knock any method that works, but some are decidedly easier than others.
