I'm bewilderd by tasting notes on dry red wines that sound like the taster is drinking Hawaiian punch. Fruit without sugar is very difficult for me to taste, however If i take a dry Cab. Sav. add some sugar and lemon juice to it and freeze it into a sherbert it tastes like pure grape juice with intense fruit flavor. I've eaten blueberries in Alaska that never developed sugar due to the short growing season,they had blueberry flavor but without sugar i can't say it was a desirable taste. I've even read Mike Jacksons notes on whiskey that he says taste like peaches and mango's I'm definately not able to taste fruit in whiskey. What can I do to sharpen up my tasting skills? Ok the blood is in the water,what's that I hear? It sounds like John Williams theme to Jaws . Help its Gruenha... aaakk.
