I came across a wine tasting quiz on reddit.com. I thought, “I wonder how they’ve crafted their questions to really understand my tastes in wines?” Only one way to find out…
Wine Tasting Quiz
The site, www.brightcellars.com, developed a short quiz (at MIT by the way) on your likes and dislikes with regards to certain foods. The first question asks about the type of chocolate you would like to “eat forever”. Choices included dark, milk, peanut butter cup but I chose white chocolate. That was was a hard first question! It gets easier though…no worries. Later questions asked about ambiance and types of grapes. It’s a quick quiz (one minute or less) that turns out to be fun too. You’ll have to sign up with an email address to get your results but its worth it.
Here are my results from their website.
PS. Looking forward to the pairing the cab down there with a rib-eye!. I’ll let you know how it goes…
BURRASCA SANGIOVESE 2016 Puglia, Italy
This Sangiovese is from Puglia in southern Italy where the warm climate gives this wine ripe red fruit flavors. Baking spices give this wine added complexity. Enjoy with hearty Italian fare such as pasta bolognese or gnocchi with tomato sauce. Pair with hard Italian cheeses like Parmigiano Reggiano.
QUINTE ROYALE QUEEN OF HEARTS CARIGNAN 2016 Coteaux de Bessilles IGP
This Carignan from the south of France is full of old-world charm. Complex notes of cherry and dried strawberry are complemented by floral aromas and just a hint of baking spice and earth. Its bright acidity allows it to pair easily with a variety of dishes, but we like it best with classic French poultry dishes such as Confit de Canard or Coq au Vin.
ACOPIO TEMPRANILLO 2015 Spain
This Spanish Tempranillo is full of ripe berries and plums, complemented by bold tannins and hints of vanilla and baking spice. Enjoy with the traditional pairing of Jamón Ibérico and Manchego cheese.
OBSCURA CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2015California, USA
Red raspberry, strawberry, and boysenberry flavors meld together with a hint of baking spice and earth in this California Cabernet Sauvignon. Firm tannins and a heavier body lend this wine to pair beautifully with a rib-eye steak. Top with Gorgonzola cheese for added decadence.
