I'm looking for a good book on wine blind tasting. Can you recommend it?
Yup, "The Concise Guide to Wine & Blind Tasting 3rd Ed." by Neal Burton. Pretty much all you'll need. I reviewed the 2nd edition here but the title pretty much speaks for itself although sadly not available in an electronic format.
Also, if you don't know it, Tim Gaiser's site has a pretty excellent collection of article on blind tasting: http://www.timgaiser.com/
I'm enjoying Nick Jackson's "Beyond Flavor." He talks to Kruth about it in one of the recent guildsomm podcasts. It's all about acid and tannin structure and while not being very grid based, I've found it's helped my blind calls a lot in the short time I've had it.
Second Tim Gaiser recommendation. Also don’t be afraid to email Masters directly to get tasting advice or set up tastings. Sometimes they feel like the prettiest girl in the bar that never gets asked to dance.
I assume your have read our guide?
It's a great guide. Thank you.
Is the second edition the latest revision? Or is it different from the original book?
No, 3rd edition is the latest and most current. Sorry, mucked up my original post. Will fix.
