Want to learn to taste wine? What about tasting wine blind?

Dylan York, Principal at the Sommelier Society of America and VP of Sales at Revana Family Vineyard, leads Somm School Insider host and sommelier-in-training Carole Mac in deductive tasting, a way to taste wine to identify sight, aroma, and flavor. It all starts with a mysterious red and white wine. Can Carole figure out what they are?

“There’s a method to the madness,” says Dylan. “Your brain knows what all these things smell like, you just have not thought about them in the context of wine.”

Here are the basics of deductive tasting:

Sight – Includes clarity, brightness, color, gas evidence, and viscosity

Nose – Includes condition and aromatics

Palate – Includes sweetness, acidity, tannins, body, alcohol, complexity, and balance

Attending somm school meant that Carole went from a newbie to an expert in a few months, able to identify a glass of wine, its grape, and whether it comes from the old or new world.

“The lesson is…drink more wine,” Carole suggests.
