“So, You Think You Know Wine?” Episode 3.9
WineAlign is pleased to present Episode 3.9 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 palate 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 “C”, Round 3
In this last round of regular play, David, Jennifer and Zoltan are back to decide who will advance to the Final round. It’s an impressive episode with the contestants relying on their instincts to bring them straight to the soul of the wine. In the end, the scoring comes down to price and vintage. Tune in to see who takes it home.

Recap and Scorecard
In the last episode, Division ‘B’ contestants Bruce, Sara and Bill were lead astray by the Firestone Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The points were scarce, but in the end we can say congratulations to Bruce who advances to the final round with a total score of 16. Sara secures a spot in the Wildcard round with her score of 14 and, unfortunately, Bill will have to try again next time. (Perhaps with a different lucky hat).
