Wine Aromas

Wine engages all the senses: sight, smell, taste, mouthfeel - even sound when glasses touch in a toast! To fully enjoy fine wine, don't be afraid to savor every sensation - especially its aroma and flavor.

Common wine aromas are listed below. The aromas come from the grapes themselves, their cellar treatment, and bottle aging (referred to as bouquet).
