 How To Taste Wine

Don't drink, Taste!

To really appreciate wine, you have to engage all of your senses.

Here's how to really taste your wine:


LOOK:  Can you see through the wine or is it opaque?  Usually the darker the wine, the richer and more full-bodied it will be.


SMELL:  Our tongues only detect certain senses - sweet, sour, salty, bitter and savory - the nose does the rest.  We often describe what we taste by what we actually smell.  Try this experiment... Select two same flavor jelly beans.  With the first, firmly pinch your nose while you eat it.  Try to figure out what flavor you have by taste alone.  Then, with the second, let go of your nose and notice what happens.  This should be an "A-ha" moment; without your nose it was only sweet, but with your nose the jelly bean has flavor!  Now, try it with the wine.  Pour some into your glass and swirl it to open and lift the aromas of the wine.  One's sense of smell accounts for a great deal of what we "taste" in wine.


TASTE:  Take a mouth full of wine, but instead of swallowing quickly, swish it around your mouth and even try to suck in some air.  This moves the win's aromas into your nasal cavities, allowing you to "taste" it better.  Wines that have sour flavors or high acidity will seem juicy and mouthwatering and give our tongues what we might call a "zing".


MOUTH FEEL:  A wine's mouth feel is the texture you perceive when you taste it.  Does a wine "feel" heavy or thick on your tongue?  Light and crisp?  Buttery and creamy?  Does it make your mouth feel dry?


DESCRIBE:  Don't worry; there are no right or wrong answers.  Describe the flavors based on your own experience.  If you love the wine and think it tasted like blackberry jam or tropical fruit, that's a meaningful descriptor that will help you build your own wine vocabulary or characteristics you like or dislike in your wine.
