What is it?
How often have you been at a winery tasting room nosing a glass of wine, and you think 'I know what that aroma is' but you just can't put a name to it, even though it's on the tip of your tongue..... literally. Then you start to think about all those wine books that you have sitting back at home, and how you don't have these with you when you need them the most.
What you need is something that is light, portable, discreet, and compact enough to fit into your pocket, purse, or wallet. Something that provides you with essential bite sized chunks of information about wine tasting and acts as a quick reference guide, or a useful prompt.
