About the event

Each wine varietal has its own aroma characteristics.  A great portion of our sense of taste comes from the aroma of what we are putting in our mouths.  Think about it, when you have a cold and your nose is stuffy, your sense of taste is dulled. Picking out the subtle flavors and aromas is a learned skill of association with known flavors and aromas. It takes a lot of effort to train our nose and palate to accomplish this. It is just another step in learning more about wines and appreciating the differences.

First we will try to educate our noses.  A set of wines will be doctored with aromas that are not subtle to our nose.  We will take time to smell these examples against what you think of as citrus, leather, berry, etc.

Then we will apply the memory of these smells to a blind tasting of varietals that include three whites, three roses, and three red wines from the Pacific Northwest. The wineries have published a description of what they smell and taste in their wines. Will you be able to figure out which description matches the wines you are tasting?  Bring THREE glasses so you can compare three

Each person should bring THREE glasses.
