Have any of you purchased either of these "wine games?" They include a number of scents but are quite expensive ($100 for the former and up to $500 for the latter). Do you know any good places to buy them?

I have the Le Nez du Vin Master Kit plus the Le Nez du Vin, The Faults of Wine Kit. You can find them for $459.99 and $130.99 respectively. Expensive? Depends on what value you place on them. I purchased the kits to review several times before I took the CA State Wine Judge Certification Test. I easily passed. Did the kits help? I am convinced that they did. I also do wine writing. The scents help to make an aroma memory bank, aiding in the proper adjectives to use in my articles. I purchased mine from:

I received prompt and courteous service and recommend them.

Bucko--

Thanks for the URL. The site says that the scents last for 10 years. How long have you had yours? Can you attest (at least somewhat) to this?

Thanks--

Only a year or so, thus I am not qualified to attest to more than that. I find the kit well worth the money to me, for reasons mentioned above.
