Jin and I went to a wine tasting yesterday. It was my first time to a wine tasting, and I felt very grown up. We learned about names, and oak, and tannins. I first heard of tannins from a How I Met Your Mother episode, and when I heard "tannin" yesterday, I couldn't help but laugh a little inside!
It was a lot of fun, with a lot of great food with great wine. It was a lot to learn in one night, especially when you are drinking all night. And I get buzzed after one glass of wine, so it was very hard for me to stay focused! But I learned some very nice pairings with foods that I already adore.
For example, champagne, strawberries, and dark chocolate taste so good together (how could I not have known?)! And port and stilton cheese were like a party in my mouth!
This was an annual event, and I think we will go again next year.
