Molecular Wine Expressions – Microscopic Images of Wine and the Grape

grape leaf, magnified

 

Going deep into the flavor and development of wine , patterns of microscopic shapes and forms tell a story of form and function.

The molecular congregations of molecules we see in wine reveal forms related to young wine and forms found in well aged cabernets, could be useful for the curious winemaker

If you are local (San Francisco Bay area), no bottle has to be opened for this.  I can sample your amazing rare wine with a Coravin system.  The photograph will last a lifetime, long after the bottle is empty.

Discover their visual complexity as they age.  Follow their vitality and ability to age well.  Know and visualize your wines better – for blending, for aging, for structure.
