Wine Tasting Tips

Wine tasting is broken down into three parts - color, smell and taste.  You don't just drink wine, you experience it!

Evaluating by sight.

  • First, look straight down into the glass, then hold the glass to the light, and finally, give it a tilt, so the wine rolls toward its edges. This will allow you to see the wine’s complete color range, not just the dark center.  It should be vibrant; it's a live product.
  • Tilt the glass and look through the wine toward the table to measure clarity.  You should be able to read through the wine.
  • Looking down, you get a sense of the depth of color, which gives a clue to the density and saturation of the wine.
  • A murky wine might be a wine with chemical or fermentation problems.

 Evaluating by smell.

  • Take in the aroma.  Swirl the wine around in the glass to release the aromas then put your nose to it.
  • You are seeking out aromas, including berries, oak and citrus.
  • Young white wines and young sparkling wines may have a scent very reminiscent of beer.  This is from the yeast.
  • Floral aromas are particularly common in cool climate white wines like riesling and gewurztraminer.
  • Some dessert wines smell strongly of honey.Young white wines and young sparkling wines may have a scent very reminiscent of beer.  This is from the yeast.
  • Older wines have more complex, less fruity aromas.
  • Scents of mushroom, damp earth, leather and rock can exist in many red wines.

  Evaluating by taste.

  • The final step is to take a sip of your wine.  Take in air as the wine sits in your mouth.
  • You will encounter a wide range of fruit, flower, herb, mineral, barrel and other flavors.  Use your taste buds to determine if the wine is balanced, harmonious, complex, evolved, and complete.
