Lined up before me are four cabernet sauvignons from Argentina and California. With a $30 bottle from California thrown in, maybe Argentina has a slight edge on the pocket-friendly side of things, but I'm more interested in trying to discern any differences between the two regions. A pipe dream considering it's likely impossible to generalize entire winemaking regions based on four wines. To give myself the best chances, though, I'll taste them blind. Tasting a wine "blind" means you don't exactly know which wine is in the glass you're about to drink from. A blind tasting will consist of a number of wines, all of which share a common thread – usually it's the varietal. The bottles are covered to conceal their labels before being poured. By tasting wines blind, we have no expectations or prejudices, and the juice must speak for itself.
