Increase Your Vocabulary with Wine Words


WINE FOLLY


 

Wine tasting is more fun when you pick out flavors. Flavor picking is a lot like remembering adjectives or famous people’s names; they might be on the tip of your tongue but they’re hard to spit out. Despite the glee of flavor picking, it’s actually a pretty difficult skill to learn when you’re just starting down the path of wine wizardry. One of the hardest things to get past in the flavors in wine is the most obvious ‘vinus’ character (a.k.a. ’wine flavor’).

Check out the following wine words to improve the way you communicate about wine.

The Power of Suggestion

 

Has this happened to you?
Someone says something like ‘carnuba wax’ when describing a Chardonnay and suddenly that’s all you can smell. Now you’ve been unwillingly transformed to your last visit to the auto detailer. How do you move past the power of suggestion?

 

A trick from Master Sommelier Tim Gaiser

 

In order to pass the rigorous blind tasting exams, Tim Gaiser has recommended sommeliers practice overcoming the power of suggestion with a visualization technique. Identify the most obvious flavor and imagine putting it on a sheet of paper. When you imagine setting the paper aside, suddenly you can smell new flavors. This powerful memory training technique is referred to as ‘the palace of memory’. You’ll be surprised how well it works when you try it yourself.
