I like Aromas
Still, don't knock the benefits of aerating wine, I say. The folks who make Wine Soiree also say that.
And because these good folks say that, and because these good folks gave me a Wine Soiree to try, and because it was Sunday afternoon and I was in the mood to have a glass of wine, and because I'd been staring at that Wine Soiree for two or three months, and because a lady I like suggested I try the Wine Soiree, I decided to take the Wine Soiree out of its package and give it a whirl.
Guess what. The Wine Soiree makes a glass of wine poured through it taste different from a glass of wine that was poured without the Wine Soiree.
Why would this be so? Well, the Wine Soiree exposes the wine poured throughh it to more oxygen than it would be exposed to were the wine simple poured straight into the bottle. This is important because wine that is thoroughly aerated tends to expose its full package of aromas and, in my experience, delivers softer tannins on the palate. Would you be surprised to learn that the wine poured through my Wine Soiree delivered and expanded array of aromas and softer tannins?
By the way, the wine used to conduct this highly unscientific experiment was the 2005 Mayo Family Winery "Random Ridge Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon(clients). It's a big wine on its own. In the hands of the Wine Soiree it's a big wine with softer tannin.
So then, do I recommend the Wine Soiree. Of course I do. It allowed more of the wine's aromas to expose themselves. And Lord knows, I like aromas.
