We often hear from guests in our tasting room that they don’t know how to explain what they are tasting, and therefore can’t say why they like or don’t like a wine. I sometimes use the analogy that wine is like music – you and I may like (or dislike)the same song, but for different reasons. The same applies to wine. Different experiences and tastes may bring us to the same conclusion, or to two very different conclusions about a particular vintage. It’s not always necessary to articulate why, but it IS important to realize what your particular tastes are. That’s the joy (and benefit) of wine tasting!
