And the Wine Jumped over the Moon III

Day III revealed the most compelling evidence yet that the luna cycle can have a dramatic affect on wine. While day II revealed style differences, day III revealed quality differences. Some wines lost acidity to point of flabbiness and tannins become less rounded while fruit was suppresed accross the board.  Once again the panel agreement was just about unanimous, differing only on a few stylistic points. Root day?

It suggests that wineries may wish to consider closing their tasting rooms on such days.

Final tasting on 24 May, followed by more detailed report back.   For background see And the Wine Jumped Over the Moon and day II report.
