Before you get started:

1. Fill in the top portion of the Journal.

2. Pull the corks from your two bottles of wine. Pour each wine into a separate glass, filling each glass about 1/3 full.

3. To remember which glass is which, you might want to place the two glasses side-by-side, keeping the Northern Rhône on the left and the Australian Shiraz on the right. In each section of the tasting, we'll evaluate the Northern Rhône first and the Australian Shiraz second.

4. Fill in all the sections of your Tasting Journal as you work through the tasting.
