I'm very impressed. They did a great job here, its fun, engaging, cool and very slick. Go take a look and play around. This is one of the funnest wine 'games' i've ever seen and to see a trade body produce this is stunning. Good work guys!

You did well? I thought it was fun, but they give you 14 tags, 7 for your bottle and 7 that are so far off base, its clearly tilted to make it simple. I pulled up some deep brooding port dessert wine, and i'd have struggled to describe its tastes without any hints, but when I've got the choice of "lime" or "caramel" its not too hard.

They're also pretty harsh though -- berating you if you get 5 of 7 right. 6 of 7 earned praise. I should go check out what happens if I throw the game.

Ha! "you scored 17/100. Beginner. Wow, you need a little more time in oak. Mature a while and try again."

You're green, kid! Open up over the next couple of years and maybe you'll be ready to fetch some real prices at auction.

Its a fun game, but they could do with a difficulty setting. I mean what are their goals here? Anyway intend on going back to play it again?
