Intermediate Wine Tasting: Aromas & Impact Compounds

Wine tasting is a craft that takes time to learn, and lots of very pleasant practice! But all enjoyment aside, the nature of identifying aromas and flavors in wine is naturally elusive, and is a constant work in progress. We go beyond the basics of aroma to break down the why behind the what!

Many wines can display similar fruit profiles, but some very specific chemical compounds known as impact compounds can be tells for certain wines. In this class we identify some of these both in theory and in the glass.
