  • Join us on Tuesday night to explore six wines using an aroma kit to help us determine what  we are smelling!

    The nose knows" or so they say, but does it really?  Those fancy wine descriptions don't always seem to match up with the wine in the glass, now do they?

    "A luxurious horseradish perfume and cantankerous mushu pork overtones are mixed in the 2007 Zinfandel from Champs de Smith."

    "Somewhat but second-rate Cabernet. Begins with salt, freakishly evil juniper and strong blueberry. Drink now through June."

    What the heck? 

    (Try this wine description generator for some more fun wine descriptions:  http://phrasegenerator.com/wine or this one:  http://static.gmon.com/tech/output.shtml?silly=yes)

    But what if, when you stick your nose in a glass, all you smell is … wine? How do you get better at identifying all the distinctive aromas that characterizes the wine you drink?

    Well, let's find out!  We will use specific aroma profiles to help us determine how to verbalize what we are smelling. 

    $25.00 in advance https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=7SJD5FFES3ETE

    $30.00 at the door.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
