Eucalyptus, tobacco, rose petals -- no, we're not making a magic potion. These are common flavor descriptors for wine, and with today's deal from Leoness Cellars, you'll learn how to see, swirl, sniff, sip, and savor wine like a sommelier: Pay $35 (regularly $75) for a two-hour guided tour, with wine and cheese pairings, at this Temecula winery. You'll start in the private VIP room with several pours, complemented by artisan cheeses and chocolates, before strolling through the vineyards to learn about the harvest and crush processes. Then, you'll head to the cellar rooms, where fermentation and aging will be discussed; the crush pad and fermentation facility for a behind-the-scenes look; and finally the tasting room for a final Port-and-chocolate pairing. Raise a glass to this palate-pleasing tour, and you just may start to taste the tomato in your Merlot and the mint in your Zin.
