The Smell of Wine

Visit Us on the Web – Click Here When you smell wine in the glass, you are smelling the “aroma,” or “nose.”  If you want to get more technical, the “aroma” specifically refers to the scents presented from the grape’s varietal character.  Those scents, or the “aroma” are often more obvious in a younger wine.  Often you will hear someone use the term “bouquet” when they reference the smell of a wine.  The terminology “bouquet” is often used in reference to the complex scents that come from an older or more mature wine.
