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: July 31, 2014 Crisp, focused, expansive in flavor and open-textured, a harmonious wine that layers its currant, wet earth, bay leaf and spice flavors beautifully, the finish lingering well. Tannins are well integrated too.
