Improving your tasting techniques

Postby wineguydotcom » Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:34 am

For those of you who can tell that the wine came from the south slope of a Santa Rita Hills vineyard during a wet, cool vintage, this isn't for you. But for most of us, an article on improving your tasting techniques in the current Food & Home is really interesting and useful. http://www.foodandwine.com/articles/win ... ine-taster I teach simple wine classes for Road Scholars (previously known as Elderhostel) and have used things like this--milk/cream to describe body; using a simple chardonnay as a base and putting in sugar into one and acid into another to discuss sweetness and acidity.. but I found this article to be useful for my own understanding as well as explaining to others..
