How to Taste Red Wine

Last updated 6 years ago

Red wines all feature unique characteristics that can be enjoyed by all your senses, not just taste. With a few simple tasting tips, you can enhance these traits of the wine so you get the most out of each bottle.

This video describes the basic steps in the red wine tasting process so that you can taste each variety with confidence. First, you should look at the color of the wine. Then, swirl it and sniff it to catch the subtle aromas of the wine. Take a sip and pay attention to mouth feel before you take note of the flavors. After you swallow the first sip, wait a moment to see how long the flavor lingers and how strong the tannins are.
