1 12  /  the tasting panel  /  july 2014 COMPETITIONS W inning a Double Gold medal at the WSWA Wine & Spirits Competition is no easy feat. Over the course of the competition, the judging panels, comprised of the industry's top decision-makers, taste flights of wines and spirits to determine if each glass is a true representation of its given varietal or spirit. In an entirely blind tasting, these judges are only provided with variety/category, vintage and proof and do not receive any information regarding price point or country of origin. In our ever-expanding marketplace, the WSWA Wine & Spirits competition, sponsored by THE TASTING PANEL Magazine, offers brands an opportunity to shine and distinguish themselves from the pack. This year's competition drew more than 260 wines and 280 spirits and we congratu- late all medal winners! Results of the 2014 Wine & Spirits Competition at WSWA Spirit judges Jeremy Merritt, Director of Food and Beverage, Future Restaurant Group, Las Vegas; Nathan Green, Assistant General Manager, TAG Bar @ The Linq, Las Vegas; Travis Nass, Spirits Guide, The Last Drop, Phoenix; Dawson Hobbs, VP State Affairs, WSWA looks over them.
