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!

Tasting note

Posted: October 21, 2016 Chewy tannins lend firmness to this medium- to full-bodied red, with fresh, finely knit acidity, smoky minerality and layers of dried cherry, salumi, ground white pepper and fennel seed flavors. The tannins reemerge on the lasting, fragrant finish.
