How do you control your alcohol intake?

If you get a coravin you can pour just one glass at a time. In theory it makes it easier not to polish off a full bottle "since it's already open".

Discovering my palate.....

I'll second the recommendation on Beaujolais. Very primary fruit focused wines and generally meant for immediate consumption. I like mine slightly chilled. Anything imported by Kermit lynch is stellar.

Is this considered a "horizontal?"

Definitely a horizontal.

I saw a talk with Michel chapoutier where someone asked what the best wine to serve with a salad is. His answer was "any of my competitors wines."

How do you know a wine will be good years in the future?

I often find that sites like cellar tracker way undercall how long a wine will stay in a prime drinking window. There will be comments like "drink it up quickly" for wines just beginning to develop tertiary flavors. But I tend to like aged wines. I'd recommend buying a couple and seeing for yourself...

new to wine

I'd give a Beaujolais or an Austrian red (blaufrankirsch, st Laurent, zweigelt) with a slight chill a try. They're good with Chinese food in my experience. Domaine dupueble and Sattler are good producers.

Ageworthy wines of the 2015 vintage?

2015 was a great vintage in Austria. Gruner will age forever. I've been stocking up on Schloss Gobelsburg and Brundlmeyer in particular.
