“So, You Think You Know Wine?” Episode 3.6

WineAlign is pleased to present Episode 3.6 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 “C”, Round 2

In this episode, Jennifer, Zoltan and David do a great job right off the nose to take this wine to California. But then it comes down to vintage and price to see who will negotiate their way to the highest score.

It’s posted and ready to go, so pour yourself a glass of wine and tune in here: Episode 3.6

Recap and Scorecard

In the last episode, Division ‘B’ contestants Bruce, Bill and Sara all zeroed in on Italy as soon as they nosed the 2007 Terre del Barolo. Both Bruce and Bill correctly identified the grape variety as Nebbiolo and the region as Piedmont, but it was Bruce who found the “soul of the wine” and scored the most points.

After five episodes, our score is as follows:
