Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Though the concept of leftover wine eludes moi, this device offers some outstanding possibilities. For instance, one could enjoy a flight* of wine without being concerned with spoilage. Or, simply begin with a light fruity wine and appetizers, move on to a big red with the grilled steak, and finish the evening with a cigar and a glass of port, thus allowing one to enjoy several different wines in one evening.
A *flight of wine is a selection of wines offered at a wine tasting event. Although the number can vary, one can expect three to ten different wines to be presented. Unlike traditional wine tasting with which we are all familiar, a tasting flight can take two forms. A horizontal flight is one which compares the same wine produced by several different wineries. A vertical flight is generally a tasting of a wine made by the same winery over a period of several years. For instance, a vertical tasting of a particular winery's Cabernet Sauvignon might include tasting a 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010, hence the use of the term vertical.
