This is the One to Get
by Mino -
If you are passionate about training your senses to appreciate the depth and dimensions about fine wine, this is the one to get. The aromas are true and the materials give enough of the science and process background to educate you without getting you lost. Visual and descriptive references are also provided to build recall on each card.
I would give 5 stars if the creators would update the sections of the book covering scents by varietal/region to better reflect the state of the winemaking in the new world today. While the old world is covered in wonderful depth, the new world reference is only very general. I'd like to see at least a few of the well-known and well-established AVAs in wine regions in CA, OR and WA represented. While many of these areas are still developing, I expect the experts could say at least something at a level of granularity finer than "California Cabernet Sauvignon".
