Evaluating Wine Quality Using Components

January 25, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


To continue our series of educational wine tastings, we are bringing Gary back to expand on what he introduced you to in September, improving your palate through identifying components in wine. If you missed the September tasting, no worries, there will be a quick review. If you attended the first component tasting, this tasting will expand your ability to evaluate wine and will improve your palate for years to come.

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, age ability 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 blind tasting of various wines how to evaluate quality and typicity (typical characters expected from a wine’s origin) using component levels.

This will be a very educational and enjoyable evening for those who wish to improve their tasting ability. No experience necessary, just come and have a great time and enjoy some great wines.

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.
