Join Dilek Caner MW and your fellow wine students and enthusiasts for a themed blind tasting.
This Monday evening series of blind tastings is designed for more experienced students, and we expect all participants to have the relevant wine knowledge so that we can all move at a similar pace.
You can register for these tastings if you hold:
- the WSET Level 2 or Level 3 Award in Wines Certification
- the Certified Sommelier level certification from the Court of Master Sommelier
You may also be able to register with special permission if you are currently a WSET Level 2 Wine student at Dallas Wine Center.
Each tasting session is designed by Dilek Caner to have students practice a specific focus, especially with wines that are easily mistaken for one another. Generally, five wines will be tasted and analyzed per session.
The following sessions will be held at Blind Bishop, located at 310 Sunset Avenue in Dallas:
Tempranillo v. Sangiovese
Monday, May 17, 2021 6:45 – 8:00pm
Theoretically it should be easy to tell Tempranillo from Sangiovese. The latter is expected to have significantly higher acidity and tannins, and the former may have an American oak influence which should be an obvious clue. However, they are very often mistaken for one another in blind tastings. In this session we will blind taste wines with a variety of quality levels from the classic regions for these varieties.
High Acid Whites
Monday, May 24, 2021 6:45 – 8:00pm
Thick-Skinned, New World Reds
Monday, May 31, 2021 6:45 – 8:00pm
Monday, June 7, 2021 6:45 – 8:00pm
