Without question, the Bordeaux wine tasting session was my favorite experience at the International Food Bloggers Conference this year. Engaging speakers, fun tablemates, and free rein to pour our own “small pours” from the multiple bottles on our table–what’s not to like? I learned a lot about how to taste, evaluate, and describe wine.
Oh, and the Bordeaux wines themselves? I could describe them as fruity, floral, earthy, woody, spicy, herbaceous…but I think I’ll settle for yummy.
