What Am I Tasting?

This complex red has taut tannins and cherry, floral and smoky mineral aromas … Play the game!

May 15, 2020

Our blind tasting game—without the tasting! Can you identify a wine just by reading its tasting note? We post real Wine Spectator reviews. You use clues such as color, aromas, flavors and structure to figure out the grape, age and origin. Good luck!

Tasting Note: Exuding a perfume of spice, dried tea rose and graphite notes on the nose, this mouthwatering red is tightly knit, with sleek, taut tannins layered with bright cherry and salmonberry fruit, as well as lavender and mandarin orange peel details. A subtle vein of smoky mineral intensifies on the finish.
