Scott is back by popular demand with a new wine tasting series desgined to transform all wine buffs into true oenophiles!

We are back with a second round of our Blind Tasting Challenge….this time with “wine jargon”!  
It can be difficult to read and understand those colorful and enchanting tasting notes.  They use words like “savory”, “jammy”, “finesse”, “structure”….but what does that tell you about the wine?  It is hard for most of us to write tasting notes like that…but what about if you are reading the tasting note and tasting the wine at the same time?  Do they make more sense?  

In this challenge you will be competing with your fellow oenophiles matching tasting notes with their wines in a race against the clock.  Let’s see who can rise to the challenge!


Scott Komplin found his passion for wine when his corporate job sent him to Sonoma, California on an extended project.  A colleague invited him for a sparkling wine tasting at the beautiful Gloria Ferrer vineyards in the Carneros.  Sipping bubbles on the terrace of that gorgeous Spanish villa was all it took.  Now 15 years later, Scott is a trained wine educator, receiving his education through the Wine & Spirit Education Trust in London.  Scott has traveled extensively to wine regions across the globe…tasting and touring famed producers in regions such as Champagne, Chablis, Burgundy, Gascogne, Okanagan, as well as through the Sonoma and Napa regions of California.
