“So, You Think You Know Wine?” Episode 3.8
WineAlign is pleased to present Episode 3.8 of “So, You Think You Know Wine?”
Season 3 showcases some of Canada’s most widely recognized, award-winning sommeliers and wine critics. WineAlign’s own David Lawrason, Sara d’Amato, Steve Thurlow and Master Sommelier John Szabo are joined and challenged by Master Sommelier Jennifer Huether, Master Sommelier Bruce Wallner, Zoltan Szabo (Sommelier at Trump Tower), William Predhomme (Sommelier at Canoe) and Bill Zacharkiw (Montreal Gazette).
Our critics have to rely on skill and talent as they use their nose, eyes and palette to identify the flavours, aromas and general characteristics of a wine to correctly determine five elements about the wine. For a wine critic, a blind taste test is the ultimate challenge.
Division “B”, Round 3
Sara, Bill and Bruce are back for their 3rd and final wine to decide who will advance to the Final round. Can Bill comeback in overtime, or are we seeing that Maple Leafs hat for the last time? In this episode do you think Sara’s strong first impression may have lead her opponents astray or did the wine do that? Pour yourself a glass and tune in to find out.

Recap and Scorecard
In the last episode, Division ‘A’ contestants John, Steve and Will had a hard time placing the Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon 2010. As Will suggested, this turned out to be “the hardest of the three”. In the end, there were still some points allocated and we do have the final results from this Division.
Congratulations to John who advances to the final round with a total score of 20. Will sneaks by with a one point advantage to secure a spot in the Wildcard round and, unfortunately, we have to say good bye to Steve. Great job gentleman!
