If you're like me, there's one thing stopping you from writing up your own tasting notes: the wine score. The rest is pretty straightforward. You can get most of the detailed information you need from the wine label, like the winery, the name of the wine, the vintage year, the wine's location of origin, price, etc. You can get the grape varietals (types of grapes used) from the label, or look it up online. The description of the wine, you can wing--just say what you think of the wine, and you're there. But what do you put down for the wine score? How do you even begin?

What's the Deal with Taste, Anyway?

Posted by miles on 2005-02-21 01:21:14 (7089 views)

[The Pedestrian Wine Drinker]
Taste is an interesting sense. In many ways, it's the weakest sense. You can see an almost infinite variety of items, differing in shape, color, degrees of brightness, etc. You can hear a wide range of tones, qualities, and volumes. You can distinguish thousands of smells, and touch includes dimensions such as pressure, pain, and temperature that can combine into sensations as varied as burning your hand on the stove, getting goosebumps, enoying a hot-oil massage, or being scratched by an itchy sweater. And all of these four senses are keeping you actively engaged with the outside world pretty much any time you're awake (and some when you're asleep).

[California]
In the affluent Silicon Valley town of Atherton, one of the most wealthiest areas in the country, a single theft of over $100,000' worth of rare and expensive wines taken from a private home has wine-lovers abuzz. Even the New York Times has taken notice.

The thieves ignored electronics, jewelry, and lesser wines to hit the basement wine cellar and zero in on the good stuff: the average value of each stolen bottle was $3000. The haul included a magnum of '59 Petrus with an estimated value of $11,000. Because of their focus on high-value bottles, it's clear that the thieves knew their wine.
