Okay my title is a little funny I know- What I am referring to is the act of sucking in air when you get a taste of wine in your mouth to sort of open up the flavor.
My question is, why haven't I EVER seen anyone else do this other than my wine class instructor? I bought some seats at a benefit for Master Sommolier students a couple years ago in SF. Each table had it's own Master Sommolier and Wine Maker (we got the president of DuckHorn, which was awesome) to take the guests through special pairings with the wineries finest wines. The Sommolier was shocked when I did it (the reverse blow) and asked where I learned it. Then he proceeded to tell me how important it was for proper tasting.
I feel like a total nerd when I do it in public (especially when I accidentally dribble wine down my shirt), but the wine tastes so good when I do it! Anyone else do the reverse blow or am I a weirdo?
