In order to identify a wine, you need to rely on three senses: sight, smell, and taste. At our fine wine store, Rockville Centre Wine & Spirits, we train our three senses to recognize the different characteristics of each wine’s taste. Sight is the easiest and there are words to describe all visual characteristics such as red, dark, clear, etc., so you there is no need to spend much time training your eyes. For example, you already know how to tell a light wine from a dark, and a white from a red, which makes you well on your way to identifying some of the different types of wine.

At our fine wine store, we know that your taste buds are very important in identifying a wines taste. There are several elements of taste that are able to recognize flavors, such as salty, bitter, sour, sweet, savory, and spicy. Each flavor is a combination of these six elements. Different parts of your tongue recognize different taste elements, so it’s necessary to use your entire mouth, including the back of your throat, when tasting wine. We’re sure you have seen some people swirling their wine in their mouth when tasting, as this is why. To train your taste, our experts suggest that you try different types of wine and practice picking out the subtle flavors like spicy, cherry, acid, etc. You should be able to tell immediately if a wine is astringent and makes your mouth pucker, which indicates high acidity, if it’s full-bodied with a high alcohol content, thicker and bolder, or sweet. We recommend that you take some time to identify the flavor elements in several different wines and use your entire mouth to help pick out the specific taste characteristics.

Smell is last because it’s the most complex, making it the most difficult to master. Plainly speaking, the main problem with training your sense of smell is that there simply are not enough words to describe every smell. In order to train your nose, it’s necessary to use language to link each smell to a word. This is why wine tasters, and the experts at our fine wine store, use words like oaky, woody, and flowery. Practice smelling different kind of wines and putting a name to each aroma that you detect. For instance, if it’s fruity, pick out the different types of fruit smells that you find present. As you fine tune your senses in regards to wine you will become more and more capable to identify the specific tastes.
