Wine flight tasting notes – sensory evaluation

20121110-212639.jpg

These are my “wine flight” tasting notes for an Australian Shiraz. It’s good practice to get used to doing this. Notes make your senses sharper and your conclusions more organized and accurate. Follow this template and you’ll be ok. Start practicing! Get used to swirling wine in mouth to coat all of the mouth and spitting it out ( AKA expectorating). If a wine has a high alcohol content and you swollow it, the true notes may get masked… You start with the nose because when you smell something a signal goes to your brain in order to let your palate know what it smelled. Interesting, right?
