Tasting wine is a little bit different than tasting other things. All wine has some kind of fruit character to it. What we think of as flavor, as blackberry pie or. Or vanilla ice cream or a really juicy hamburger. That's primarily aroma so this is why when you have a cold, nothing tastes like much of anything. The next time you take a sip of wine, stop, think about it.
