Swirly Swirly, Sniffy Sniff

My siblings and I all sat down to try our hand at wine tasting. We ordered the skillshare wine set that Gary recommended. 

V8 Prosecco (pictured above)

Initial sniff notes:

  • Almonds
  • New shoe smell

tasting notes:

  • first tasted like pop-rocks
  • chocolate on the mid-palette
  • then a nice celery finish (probably influenced by the name "V8"...)

Tasting notes:

  • "it smells like a nice, clean bathroom. That's not a bad thing."
  • oregano
  • celery
  • lemon
  • definite mid palette bite
  • wild onions

Maipe 2013 Cabernet Savingon

Sniff:

  • Pepper
  • Wood cabinets
  • rubbing alcohol
  • chopped walnuts
  • a rusty boat at sea
  • plums
  • chocolate
  • cherry lifesavers

Tasting notes:

  • pepper
  • chocolate
  • waxy candy pop bottles
  • cigar
  • strawberry
  • charcoal
  • tongue feels hairy

The notes may not sound like it, but we really had a lot of fun doing this! We all came away excited to try more wines. Overall our favorite was the Sancerre, although the Cabernet Savingon came in at a close second. We definitely had the most fun with the tasting notes on that one!
