    collocation of "taste"

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether the following sentences are credible?

    Janet’s mercurial taste in men brings men of all ages and backgrounds into the picture.”
    “We have similar tastes in music.”
    “To devolope a taste for music.”
    “The way he spoke to those children left a nasty taste in my mouth.”
    “The fruit left a bitter taste in my mouth.”
    “They showed good taste in planning the décor.”
    “While she was in France she developed a taste for fine wines.”

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
