Aromas of Wine

Event Date

Saturday, January 12, 2019
10:00am - 12:30pm

Can you describe the fragrance of a fresh peach without saying that it smells “like” something else? Wine is a poetic drink. A complex glass of wine can have a dozen aromas and flavors waiting to be discovered. As wine is exposed to air it evolves and new aromas and flavors reveal themselves. Each varietal has characteristic flavors and aromas: Chardonnay’s buttery citrus aroma, Viognier’s floral nose, a French Burgundy “barnyardy fragrance”, Gewürtztraminer’s kerosene, Zinfandel’s pepper and spice, or Cabernet’s chocolate and red berry fruit. Start making greater use of your nose and, I promise, you will discover a whole different world of wine! Follow me with a glass in hand, as we explore the pleasures of using our olfactory system – especially as it pertains to wine!
