My first post on my journey into wine!
i am determined to learn as much as I can about wine and have been told the way to go about this is by tasting as many wines as possible.....shame.
I have been noticing that when I take the first sip of a wine it tastes very different to a couple of sips later. (This is not because I've drunk lots of it either!)
I find this especially with highly tannic reds. having just opened a bottle of 2007 Bordeaux (after breathing) the first sip is tannic and quite tight. Initial impressions were not good but after 3 more I am really enjoying it.
If at a tasting, how are you supposed to determine which wines are good if you are only taking a sip or two of each one? Will this develop over time?
