One fun way to test the palate of those you enjoy wine with is to play a small game with red wine and a wine decanter. Have a wine tasting party and invite your friends over for the event. To test everyone’s palate with red wine and the decanting process get two bottles of a young red wine that are exactly the same. A few hours before the party use one of your wine decanters for one of the bottles of wine but not the other.
During the other have your guests sample a glass of wine that has been poured from the decanter or another that was from the bottle directly. It is interesting to taste and smell the difference between the two even though they are exactly alike.
This is a fun way to taste wine together and even talk about the decanting benefits and the effects it had on the taste and smell of the bottles of young red wine. To make things even more fun for your guests you could choose to give a Barbera Wine Tote to each guest who was able to correctly pick the decanted wine from the straight from the bottle red wine.
