Wine Descriptions

Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine

3. Grab some food: Old World (European) wines are always better with food, so keep that in mind.  Grab some charcuterie and cheese, nuts, olives, etc.

4. Decant the wines: You don't necessarily HAVE to decant the wines (if you can, please do), but it might help to open them at least 30 mins before.  If you are using a Coravin, it would be good to potentially pour them into a glass ahead of time to let them breathe.

5. Chill the wines: The wines will taste better if they are at least a few degrees cooler than room temperature (between 55-65 degrees, depending on your preference), so don't hesitate to stick them in a regular fridge for an hour beforehand if they weren't in a wine fridge already (it's gonna be hot this weekend!).  20+ minutes in the freezer is an option, too, if you're in a hurry!  

6. Get your glassware out:  Make sure the glasses you use are big enough that you can actually get your nose in there and smell the wines.

7. Don't forget the water!
