Tastings Done in the Riedel Tasting Glass (shown in Photo)
Essential for evaluating the color, aroma, and taste of wine.
TIP THE GLASS ON ITS SIDE to appreciate the color, THEN ROLL IT to gather the aromas within its perfectly tapered bowl. In a conventional glass, only half the possible surface is reached by the liquid to show aroma intensity.
(if you havent Tasted from This Glass Before - You are In For a Treat - Aroma Like Never before)

Each person will get 2 oz of each Wine to Taste in the Riedel Tasting Glass.
Wine temp will be hopefully near 65 degrees - with the Bottles opened at least an Hour Before.
Bread will be served between Tastings to clear the Palate.
You can Drink or Spit.
