We received two very similar listener questions so it was time to make a podcast of it! They were....
Caryn R: I am trying to learn more about aroma and taste. How does one discern that a wine has notes of pineapple and honeysuckle, for example? Is all of that really true or just marketing? Can i learn to smell and taste with more nuance?
Ted A: I'd like you to discuss palate. Can it be enhanced? How do you improve your palate? Do some people like me just not have a great palate, and it can't be improved?
We address all the questions above:
And finally, non-conventional advice like: don't buy aroma kits and stop with the blind tasting, already!
