Mini Clinic: The 6 Wine Flaws You Should Know About

Our 30-Minute (or So) Wine Clinic on the Identifying Everything from Corked to Cooked Wines

< 1 min read

Hello and welcome to our final mini-clinic of the summer, on identifying wine flaws.

In this 30-minute (or so) presentation, I cover six of the most obvious flaws, including heat damage, oxidation, reduction, brettanomyces, volatile acidity and TCA (corked wines). It is important to note that everyone has different levels of tolerance when it comes to detecting these flaws, but with the help of this class, you should be able to have an idea of what to look for in every wine you taste.
