Here at Rockville Centre Wine & Spirits, we are known as the best place to go wine tasting in Rockville Centre, and with good reason. We are here to give you the basics of wine tasting so that you can get the very most out of your next wine tasting experience. When tasting wine, it is about more than just your sense of taste. You also need to use your senses of smell and sight in conjunction with your sense of taste in order to get the fullest experience and make the most informed judgment. The first step is to evaluate the wine using your sense of sight. After pouring the wine into a wine glass, tilt the glass slightly away from you and take a good look at the color of the wine. Go beyond generalizations. Rather than red, or white, try to make a more detailed evaluation of what kind of red or white it is. Is it a deep ruby? Is it a golden kind of white? Is it more straw-like in its coloration? These are all more concrete and definitive evaluations. Then you can also evaluate the wine’s opacity using your sense of sight. The next sense to activate is smell. It helps to swirl the wine for a bout ten seconds in order to encourage the natural aromas to arise for better identification. Make an initial evaluation, and then smell again to confirm your observations. The next step is the tasting itself. First identify if the wine is creamy or crisp, light or heavy, and dry or sweet. These are the main tenants of wine tasting identification. Then, you can make more specific evaluations.
