The grape variety *is* a scientific classification.

I did *not* suggest a full biological taxonomy; I suggested a
binominal-variety combination.

And I did, indeed; /suggest/, it; by way of an example; hence my use of
the word "say". It could just as easily be a simple:

        <span class="variety">Pinot noir</span>

Either way; it certainly makes more sense to use the same term as
eventually used in "species", than, say, class="grape".

>They're buying wine and not retaking high school biology.

Oh, really?
