Blind Tasting: CaberYayyy!

About the Event
In our latest Blind Tasting class, we'll focus solely on the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal. Would you be able to tell a $5 CabSauv based on taste alone when compared to a $50 bottle? So, why taste blind? Tasting a wine blind is one of the best ways to formulate an unbiased opinion about the wine. Any knowledge that you have about a wine including price and region of origin can cloud your judgement or influence your assessment. Strip away all of those deciding factors and you're left with just a glass of wine staring back at you...and that's a good thing. Enjoy the wine for what it is. Understand what you like about it and also what factors you don't enjoy. Don't let price, brand or country of origin influence your decision on whether or not the wine is "good".
