Blind Tasting Challenge this Friday in El Cajon.
There is no such thing as a universal tasting experience, and no such thing as a perfect palate. Each of us has differing sensitivities and abilities, and the deductive tasting method allows all tasters to discover their strengths and weaknesses, to gather the most complete set of descriptors, and to build a personal storehouse of descriptors, in order to skillfully analyze and identify wines in a blind tasting. By developing and practicing these skills, the taster becomes adept at understanding the style, character and quality of all the wines that he or she is assessing.
The Deductive Tasting Method breaks down into four criteria:
- Sight – Provides valuable information about a wine’s age or condition
- Nose – The most important aspect of tasting, smell is 85% of taste
- Palate – Confirming what you have already smelled
- Conclusion – Taking evidence gained and known “markers” to form the best possible conclusion.
Join us Friday evening at Harvest Ranch Market in El Cajon, as we sharpen our tasting skills with a Blind Tasting of an array of stellar wines!
I look forward to seeing you here.
