Blinder than Blind


Wine tasting on weekends are some of the best things to attend.  Recently a wine shop in DC presented a blind tasting.  They admitted when we got there that maybe they could have made it a bit easier and made it one region, one varietal or narrowed it down in some fashion.  Why?  Because we felt like we were taking the test for a Master Somm.  It was awesome.

All I can say is I got a huge F on this test.  I was writing/spelling wrong at some points because I was confused and failing so badly! I was close on some, region-wise.

Does that mean I need to take it again and taste more wine?  I was definitely blinder than blind is this one.
