If you tasted a wine and deduced it to be a 95 point wine, what are the odds that if the exact wine was given to you blind at three month intervals, completely unknown to you, that you would score it 95, or even close each time?
I must admit I pulled this on some folks in my local tasting group - this one "gentleman" in particular likes to get all the attention at these tastings - he raved and waxed poetically over the 2001 Caymus Special Selection about 4 months ago. He proclaimed it a 95 pointer and one of the best wines he'd ever had. On two subsequent occasions, me and a buddy brought bottles and poured them blind, with the "gentleman" scoring the wine 89 once and 91 a second time.
How calibrated and consistent is your palate and tasting memory?
