Service Description

Join us at Enoch’s Wine Cellar, Jefferson for a personalized wine experience where you are the judge at a prestigious wine competition, evaluating world class Cabernet Sauvignon wines. Upon arrival an Enoch’s Wine Ambassador will greet you with a refreshing glass of wine to enjoy as you learn the history and vision of Enoch’s Stomp Vineyard & Winery as well as the Cellar & Coffee House. At Enoch’s tasting table you will begin the “You Be the Judge” Cabernet experience with a charcuterie board and, to warm up your senses, a blind aroma and flavor adventure. The rest of your approximately two hour experience will include learning the U.C. Davis 20-point wine scoring system which is used in the world’s most prestigious competitions to award gold, silver, and bronze medals. Your newly acquired knowledge will be then applied as you blindly judge six different Cabernet Sauvignons: two from Enoch’s, two highly rated 90+ labels, and two less prestigious labels. Enoch’s hope is to offer you a pleasurable, entertaining experience from which you leave understanding how medals are won at international wine competitions and convinced that Enoch’s wines are world class! Important Information: - During the class you will be tasting 6 different Cabernet wines in a 2-ounce pour. This is equivalent to ½ a bottle of wine. Please plan accordingly. The class typically lasts two hours. - This experience is geared toward dry red wine drinkers who are especially fond of Cabernet Sauvignon. Sweet wine drinkers may prefer to register for an alternative wine experience. - The U.C. Davis system is a somewhat technical and sophisticated scoring system requiring the judge to discern wine characteristics such as bouquet, aroma, taste, tannins, astringency, color, clarity, acidity, sweetness, etc. Experienced wine drinkers will likely have some knowledge of these aspects. If you do not presently possess this knowledge don’t let that scare you away as we love teaching anyone willing to learn.
