4S: SEE, SNIFF, SIP, SUMMARIZE
SNIFF >> Aroma Identification and Intensity
Swirl and sniff each of the wines to identify and compare their aromas.
SWIRL AND SNIFF YOUR WINES
Are the aromas intense? Do they jump out of the glass? Or are they faint?
What aromas can you identify in each wine?
- Can you find any of the aromas typically associated with these varietals?
- Are all the aromas fruity?
- Do you pick up any vanilla or toasty oak aromas from oak barrels?
Circle your observations on your tasting checklist.
