Blind Tasting Party
In a little while, Big Ag and I, along with some friends and coworkers from the winery will be getting together for a blind tasting party. We will each be bringing one bottle, which will have the label covered to provide it with anonymity, plus a dish to share. The covering on the label will allow us to taste and see what appeals to us without the distraction of knowing what winery it came from, what we know about any awards or points given by wine societies or magazines, or what we've heard about it from others in the business. It will also allow us to jot down various flavors we note on tasting -- will we really get essences of cranberry and oak when we don't know that's what we're supposed to be tasting? We will see.
