Tips on Tasting

This post is not intended to be the definitive tome on glassware, sensory perception or being a professional somellier.  These tips on tasting are about finding out why you like the wines you like and building on what you like without occurring as a novice to snooty neighbors or wine snobs who read labels and espouse the virtues of Robert Parker.

If you are tasting 2 or three wines, use one glass per wine.

Make sure the glasses are the same, with enough room so that when you give the liquids a good swirl – without the wine ending up on the floor.

Professional tasting glasses are easy to carry in packs and provide a standard across the industry – but for our interests, select a decent sized glass with an opening of sufficient size to get your nostrils into the working area.
