what am i tasting?

Every two weeks, we post a real Wine Spectator tasting note. Read the description carefully, noting the color, tastes, aromas and other important clues.

Then, figure out the correct answers in four multiple-choice categories: Variety, Country or Region of Origin, Approximate Age, and Appellation. Submit your guess and check the answer. Good luck!

When you're finished with this edition, check out the "What Am I Tasting?" archive.

Tasting note

Posted: April 24, 2014 Powerful and delicious, starting with fragrant dried violet notes and giving way to juicy, thick blackberry and huckleberry flavors, with details of black licorice, tobacco, spice box and candied violet. The tannins are thick and velvety, but never get in the way of the intense flavors.
