It is a Leap Year, so come take a leap with us into the potentially unknown as the fun and games continue for our FLIGHT NIGHTS!. On this occasion we will pour a set of wines blind and provide you with a list of the possible grape varieties used to produce them. The game is to match the wine to the correct grape variety. If you pay some attention to the characteristics of the wines you taste and drink, eventually you can build up a set of cerebral index cards tied to those qualities. Many consumers do not believe they can perform this feat, and yet go through every day encountering smells and flavors that they recognize without even thinking about it.

You might surprise yourself with this flight, but even if you match none of the wines presented, the fun is in the playing. And we can tell you from many decades of professional tasting experience, sometimes those index cards between the ears just seem to go missing! Often overlooked as well, is the importance of context - your mood, the bite of food you just ate, that previous sip of something completely different - any of these can upend the most skilled of tasters in this game. So join us!
