Tasting Note Aid
A good wine tasting note help you visualize and relive your wine tasting experience. It is not just descriptive, but precise on the characteristics and aromas of the wine. Our tasting note aid is designed to help you achieve this.
How to use our tasting note aid: Take several good sniffs of your wine to identify the types of aroma present: fruity, floral, nutty, earthy, herby, spicy, or bad. Our tasting note aid, categorized by aroma type, will help you find a more concrete description. We have also included useful adjectives to help you better remember the strengths and impressions of the wine.
Note: Our Tasting Note aid includes the commonly used wine impressions. If you want a more comprehensive tasting note aid, you can buy the Wine Aroma Wheel. Designed by Ann Noble, a professor at University of California at Davis, the Wine Aroma Wheel uses three tiers (or circles) to help you pinpoint the aroma. The inner circle provides a general category (e.g. floral or fruity) and the outer circle provides specific impressions relating to that category (e.g. rose or plum). It includes unusual aroma categorizations such as chemical and microbiological.
