Once you have tried a few different wines, choose the ones you enjoyed most and try testing your sense of smell by closing your eyes. The glass is tenderly moved around, empowering the release of fragrances from the wine. You will be able to identify subtle distinctions for each, which will help you recognize which one you are trying. With practice, this is where the professionals gulp and mix their wine which allows more precise and continuous tasting. If you can master comparing flavours and smells, you are half way there.
