The Essence Collection was designed to help you "educate your palate" in order to maximize your enjoyment of wine. Common essences found in all types of wine are captured in glass vials. The enclosed booklet gives a brief description of the contents of each of the vials in the collection. Used by wine merchants, wineries, and educators as a tool to develop senses for the complex components of wines.
One expert says, " A large part of the wine taster's skill comes from being able to develop some sort of classification system and then to associate words/categories with smells."
