So what is a horizontal tasting anyway?
A horizontal tasting has only wines from the same vintage. In addition, the wines included have something more in common. For example, the wines are often all from the same region. For example, you could compare the different Cabernet Sauvignons made by Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Cabernet, the Beringer Sonoma Cabernet & the Smith & Hook from the Central Coast. Generally, the wines do come from the same general region or else the vintage characteristics can be quite different.
There are no absolute rules for what wines can be included in a single vintage horizontal, but we will come up with a fun group of wines that have something in common.
