    Great great show Chris, and you nailed the who tasting notes debate. I can’t stand when critics mention 25 different things when they taste.

  3. Lance says:

    That looks like a lot of fun. Fantana is one of my drinking barolos, solid price,nice fruit easy to drink.

    SILVIO GRASSO CIABOT MANZONI BAROLO 2004 is my present choice.

    Great video, and I think that you did a great job of talking about tasting notes. In fact, this is one of the best descriptions of the challenges of tasting, and the intimidation factor for less experienced wine drinkers. I know I was always self conscious about the fact that I wasn’t picking up all the things that the guy next to me was getting. After a while I finally started realizing that everyone has different palates, and that I’m not always going to get the same thing as the guy next to me.

    Outside is great, I always go out onto my balcony to get better aromas as we are usually cooking inside and it cab interfere with the true aromas. Great episode.

  8. JOhn Kent says:

    I agree, many times when I am cooking and drinking wine.at the same time .everything I taste and smell in the wine tastes and smells like what I am cooking. This is a great show with a great opening.
