I think maybe the reason you like the wine the next better, is that it had more time too breath.

Some wines, I believe ( I'm not an expert mind you) need time to breath b/f drinking especially reds.

I wished I lived closer, I would love to be w/ you all at the next wine tasting.

What a fun time!! I had no idea wine had legs - I'm a little slow too.


Thanks for the wine lesson. I'm a white wine drinker, but I keep thinking one day I'll be adventurous and try something a red. Glad you learned something new, too.


I am not a wine fan, but I would be happy to hang with the girls for any reason! Looks like fun!

I studied under the professor at UC Davis who invented the wine aroma wheel, Dr. Ann Noble when I did my viticulture and enology degree. Yes, always swirl and smell the wine first, this is why you never pour a full glass.

And wine can smell like petroleum. The most common being Riesling made in Germany. I have had many petroleum wines and the odor usually blows off but can also be a good thing.

Sounds like you had a fun time with this.

I love it that you received some schooling in wine. Years ago we had been part of a wine tasting club & always had a blast while learning & tasting the wines. We'd always cleanse our pallets with sorbet between different bottles, which really helped.

I've also found that I detest a wine with some foods & adore it with others. But, that is the way some wines are.

Mental P Mama

LOL. I like your last one: "burns nose"

I don't know if I would have been able to keep taking notes!
