wine tasting

just to mix it up, i went to a wine tasting house party on monday night
the concept was simple, everyone was assigned a varietal to bring
all the bottles got a number and their labels hidden in a paper bag
everyone tries the wines, compares them to the tasting notes and makes their best guess as to its identity

i only drink white wine
the red gives me most unfortunate migraines
so i only sampled five of the eleven wines on offer
i instantly got the gewurztraminer, the sauvignon blanc and the reisling
but i mixed up the chardonnay and the zoignier
that was still good enough to come second place percentage wise in the guessing
and i won wine pairing and cheese facts playing cards!
go me!
