5.0 out of 5 stars The best wine tasting book I've encountered, 8 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Essential Winetasting: The Complete Practical Winetasting Course (Paperback)
Michael Schuster does and excellent (and methodical) job of explaining the art of wine tasting. Nothing is assumed as the reader is taken through the correct process of tasting wine. This methodical approach is tremendously important and, as a matter of technique, it its application is equally useful to both the novice and the professional.

Michael employs a great specificity of language that will help readers understand exactly how oak, climate, grape variety, soil, and other factors influences the wine. This in turn can raise the readers' awareness, appreciation and enjoyment of wine.

This book has helped me understand wine better, and improved my ability to describe and write about wine. I am a professional Sommelier and a wine writer, and this book has unequivocally helped me in passing blind-tasting exams as well.

I see this book as an essential resource both for wine lovers and for wine professionals, and I recommend it whole-heartedly.
