Course: Understanding Wine
sniff: intensity and identification
In all the previous tastings, judging the intensity of the wine's aromas and identifying them have been done as separate steps. Beginning with this tasting, and continuing to the end of this course, combine these two steps into a single process. With your first sniff of the wine, evaluate its intensity, then see how many aromas you can identify. In your second and third sniffs, complete the identification process.
