Aspiring sommeliers boost grape-based know-how during events at Vino Tabi that empower students to design palate-pleasing blends of multiple vintages. Instructors begin class by doling out tastings of classical bordeaux blends, pontificating on balance, flavor signatures, and correct pronunciation of the word “tannin." Next, fusions are broken down into individual elements, with samples of five traditional varietals, including cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, and malbec. Finally, apprentices take charge, using newly acquired knowledge to pour a personalized concoction heavy on desirable characteristics such as hints of berry, oak aromas, and the power to turn dogs invisible. Hands carry home bottles of the one-of-a-kind blend that have the sides festooned with a personally designed label for future display.
