It’s no surprise that fancy Wineaux with lots of credentials are experienced blind tasters. There is definitely something to be said for learning and experiencing enough to be able to asses a wine without knowing its pedigree, variety, or origin.
But so many wine lovers (and a few Hollywood productions) are entranced by the incredible confidence with which some tasters are able to identify wines. How do they do it?
Whether you are a very experienced taster or a wine lover just beginning your journey, Flatiron team member and Wine Minx®️ Annie Edgerton will help you unlock the secrets of blind tasting.
This class will sample five wines blind and cover how to assess structural elements of acid, tannin, body, and alcohol, along with fruit intensity, concentration, complexity, and evolution, and more. Annie will help you focus the “mental Rolodex” of wines you’re familiar with, and show you how to pick up cues from winemaking, origin, variety, and quality to impress your friends—or maybe undertake high-level wine exams! This class will begin at 6:00pm on Monday, August 21 and run for approximately 90 minutes. Wines discussed in class will be available for purchase with a discount available to attendees only. Seating is limited.
