“So, You Think You Know Wine?” Episode 3.7

WineAlign is pleased to present Episode 3.7 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 “A”, Round 3

John, Steve and Will are back for their 3rd and final wine to decide who will advance to the Final round. The cabernet sauvignon in this episode causes confusion right off the start. Is it a wine from the old world? Or is it a new world wine made in an old world style?  In a game where every point counts, you’ll have to tune in to find out: Watch Episode 3.7

Recap and Scorecard

In the last episode, Division ‘C’ contestants Jennifer, David and Zoltan easily identified the grape variety in the Sterling Cabernet Sauvignon and they had no trouble pinning it to California. However it was Zoltan who negotiated his way to the most points to win the round.

After six episodes, our score is as follows:
