Let's compare notes! Part II
When you read a tasting note written by someone else of a wine that you are familiar with, do you recognise it? How much do individual perceptions differ? And do we use different language to describe the same tasting sensations? If these questions interest you, then let me make a suggestion: let's independently taste a bunch of wines, and then compare notes. After carrying out this exercise with with Majestic's Spanish tasting weekend (notes to appear soon), I thought it would be worth repeating for the Fetzer/Bonterra tasting week (already underway). 

If you can get near a branch of Majestic Wine over the next three days (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 2nd-4th October) they have a selection of wines from the Fetzer/Bonterra range on tasting. Take along a pen and paper, and write your own tasting notes on these wines. I'll do the same. Then type them up and e-mail them to me, and I'll compile them and post them here on this site. It will be fascinating to see how our perceptions correlate. Do make an effort to join in: I think it will be quite a fun exercise. If you can't manage it this week, we'll repeat this again for the South Africa tasting weekend (12-14th October).
