The Back Deck Test

If I can’t drink a bottle on the back deck then I won’t buy it. A big danger when selecting wines to import is that you can be drawn to the wine that stands out in a line up. So what makes a taster notice a wine after they have tasted 70 wines? Well, usually it is heavily oaked and that means for most of us who haven’t tasted 20 wines by days end, they are un-drinkable. So I have a simple test to eliminate those wines, can I drink a bottle on the back deck? Job’s done!
