Become a Master Taster Through Component Tasting

September 28, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Components are the basis of the flavor of any wine. The ability to discern components (sweetness, acidity, tannin, bitterness, alcohol….) impacts a taster’s skill at determining wine quality, origin, ability to age and drinkability.

Certified Wine Educator Gary L. Twining literally wrote the book on component tasting and passed the Institute of Masters of Wine’s blind identification using components as the basis for his deductions. He will illustrate through a short component tasting where in the mouth you perceive each component. We will then taste a number of exceptional wines blind to put what we have learned to good use in their evaluation. We will also discuss how long they would age and what foods would work with them.

This will be a very educational and enjoyable evening for those who wish to improve their tasting ability through the same acclaimed program Gary has offered several times at the International Conference for the Society of Wine Educators.

No experience necessary, just come and have a great time with an event that will improve your palate for years to come. Since we’ll be tasting blind, we’ll reveal the wines after you taste. As always we have selected some exceptional wines to show specific component levels and to tantalize your palate.

Cheeses, breads and other good things will be served to complement the wines. Reservations are required. Call 440-498-WINE(9463) or email us at info@westernreservewines.com
