In other words, swirling aerates wine and gives you a better smell. 4 {Taste} RED 3 {Smell} • Smell the wine at least three times • The third smell will give you more information than the first smell did • The smell helps you identify certain characteristics 5 {Savor} • Bitterness in wine is usually created by high alcohol and high tannin Ask yourself the following questions to help focus your impressions: • Sweetness only occurs in wine with some residual sugar leftover after fermentation • White wine: How was the acidity? Very little, just right, or too much? • Sour (sometimes called “tart”) indicates the acidity in wine • Light, medium, or full-bodied? • Red wine: Is the tannin in the wine too strong or astringent? Is the tannin pleasing? • What is the strongest component (residual sugar, fruit, acid, tannin)? • How was the aftertaste? The longer the aftertaste lingers in the mouth, the finer the quality of wine.
