The Nose Knows

Envious of wine types who expertly swirl, take a wiff, and wax on and on about "essences"? Want to be one of them? Start with this wine tasting kit from the Wine Enthusiast. It comes with 9 essences (sweet, bitter, sour, smooth, acetic, flowery, fruity, oak, and tannin). Pour a few drops into a glass of water, sniff, taste. Repeat for each essence, then test yourself with some real wine. It makes for a great group activity. ($59.95)
