SUMMARIZE >> Quality and Personal Preference

Rank the four wines in terms of quality and personal preference.

 

 
Quality

  • Is the wine straightforward? Or complex, with lots of aromas and flavors?
  • Would it hold your interest for a second glass?
  • Are the aromas and flavors appealing?
  • Are the components--fruit, sweetness and acidity--in balance? Or does one of them jump out at you?
  • Is the finish short or long?

Circle your conclusions on your tasting checklist.

 

 
Personal Preference

  • Are the aromas and flavors appealing to you?
