White Wine Melancholia part II

I did it again in my midterm this evening, I thought an Alsatian Riesling was a Sancerre.  That's worse than last time, as I'm supposed to get the aromatic varieties pretty well.  I just didn't appreciate the acid enough to call it a Riesling, and I didn't get any petrol at all.  My teacher says it is helpful to swish a little wine around before the test starts.  Prime the pump, so to speak.

New plan.  The MW exam has the tasting in the morning, so I should get used to priming that pump.  Three times per week, I'm going to taste in the morning, then recork the wines to enjoy with my wife Wendy later.  That way, she doesn't have to deal with my geekish ways and we can have time together.  Plan.
