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: September 22, 2016 Effusive, with violet and white pepper aromatics and ripe, juicy and succulent blueberry and huckleberry fruit, balanced by notes of licorice and dark chocolate. The tannins are firm and tight, but the flavors gush on and on during the finish.
