Ever since we took that wine class, Hillsy and I have been exploring new wines every weekend. We got to try three different ones this weekend - thank goodness for 3-day weekends. We're by no means experts at it, but it's fun trying to decipher flavors and figuring out what type of wine we enjoy.
We started taking notes in a dedicated notebook. This way, we can look back and see our progress and monitor our tastebuds and detection-skills, which will hopefully improve over time. The notes we take are pretty basic (probably laughable by wine connoisseurs) - hey you gotta start somewhere!
