about the difference in the taste of wine depending on the glass...mmmmm

I went home and analyzed my red wine glasses and most of them have a "lip" on them. I found one without...and my wine tastes amazingly better
Thanks for the tip!

As a matter of fact, I'm enjoying a bottle right now

How many glasses/bottles did it take to taste good? I've never found one that was palatable to me.

Isn't that amazing? I didn't want to take that class in Napa, but my niece told me it was crucial to know about glasses before I even got involved in wine tasting. I ended up coming home with a case of Riedel glasses. The wrong glass can destroy the taste of a good wine. Enjoy!

PS: I thought you were going to say Hector bought a boat!!

No need to when your neighbor has one.

Mike, we'll have to do a wine tasting. I will find wine you like and/or get you loaded!

My Napa stash is getting low, I have to get back out there!

All it took was one sip! Although, the bottle is almost gone now
I'm drinking a bottle of DaVinci 2007 Chianti....mmmmm

Jazzy, count me in on that wine tasting...they are so much fun!

Absolutely. Riedel even makes different shaped glasses for different wines to enhance the full effects of the wine. 1st thing I learned is if you use a wine glass that has a lip around the edge of it, the taste of the wine stops at the tip of your tongue. If the edge of the glass is smooth, the flavor will hit somewhere near the middle of your tongue. It makes a big difference in taste! Try it.

http://www.champanes.com/homepage.html

For liquor lovers, like me, they have an unbelievable selection of beer and liquor too!!!

I frequent Champanes on a regular basis. They carry a few of my favorite wines that I can usually only get in Napa.

They also sell Reidel glasses there. Target has a lower priced version of the Reidel wine glasses for decent prices.

Ok I thought this was crap so I researched it a little. For all of you left brain thinkers like me, it is true and there is a logical explanation. More than having an effect on the actual taste, the shape and size of the glass has an effect on the aroma and how it is funneled into the nose of the taster. Of course smell directly affects taste. I'm still not sure I buy the part about the composition of the glass.

Very interesting, I never would have imagined a glass would alter the taste in any way.
