This guide helps those new to winetasting gain confidence in their own senses and perception, and more experienced winetasters deepen their understanding of how wine works, resulting in a greater appreciation of the varied world of wine, and better use of precious wine-buying dollars.
Here are the vital technical information about the creation of wine along with the physiology of taste and smell clearly, with delightful touches of humor.
Winetaster's Secrets covers topics that many other winetasting guides fail to address, such as the effects of aging on the palate, how scoring systems work, and the special techniques for tasting and evaluating unusual varieties of wines such as icewine and burnt wine (brandy).
This guide makes a wonderful gift for the aspiring wine connoisseur; it can be read straight through or dipped into as a valuable reference. It is also used as a text in the many winetasting workshops springing up across North America.
