Blind Wine Tasting
Evaluating, or judging, a wine is a fundamental part of "wine lore". Everyone does it, and at its simplest level the question asked is "Do I like this?" and then, "Why?" At more experienced levels, tasters try to specify what they like - is it the color, the aroma, the flavor? At competitive levels, tasters will assign points to these and other categories, and rank wines in comparison to one another. That's how medals and other prizes are awarded.
Not only is tasting wine blind a critical component of the Sommelier testing, it helps you become more conscious and aware of the richness of the wine.
You will be tested on 8 identifiers. Here are hints to enhance your enjoyment of your Blind Tasting.
Look at the wine - write something down
