Wine Class

Okay, for starters, we decided to do the Wine Spectator Wine School "Tasting 101" course. It's actually a fun little course. We learned about the 4 S's: See, Swirl, Sip, Summarize. (We can think of at least 6 S's: See, Swirl, Sniff, Sip, Swish, Spit/Swallow, Summarize).
Our first assignment is a flight of whites. We are to get a California Chardonnay with evident oak (shouldn't be difficult), and Sauvignon Blanc from CA/OR with no evident oak, and a dry Riesling from either Germany, France, or CA.
