Studying wine by smelling, tasting, and doodling

http://www.backclinicinc.com/?jixer=broker-opzioni-binarie-demo-gratuita&0c8=d6 Let’s face it.  I’m no Joan Miro. Which is why I’m always so impressed by the creative and artistic abilities of others.  But lately, I’ve been making the attempt – to sketch while I sip.

Here I was, taking notes of the many different wines along the way, when I suddenly started to notice that words on paper alone weren’t actually helping me remember what it was that I had tasted.

Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux 1985, from dad’s cellar, enjoyed on what would have been his 80th birthday (1.4.16)

(“Remember that incredible pot roast we made…?”) But after a while, some of the basic information just starts to fade (“What was the name of the producer again?”)

A delicious gift given to me by my client, T. Lawyer.

Oh,  I don’t spend too much time on it (as you can see).  But, it seems to be just enough time to take notice of a few key visual characteristics.  This helps me remember.  My olfactory and gustatory senses are working all the while, of course 🙂

Ca’ del Bosco Franciacorta Cuvée Prestige is one of my favorite sparkling wines. Shared on Christmas 2015.

Christmas gift from friend K. Peterson. Had this wonderful producer just a week earlier (Albe). Both yummy.
