[BLANK_AUDIO] Why smell wine? The reason you smell wine is because a huge part of all that flavor that you get when you taste wine actually comes through your nose. That's why smelling the wine, taking a big sniff Contribute so much to what you get out of the wine. This wine, for instance, a Pinot Noir from California. To me this smells like, it kind of reminds me of ripe black cherries with maybe a little bit of pepper, and some toasty notes from the oak barrels that it was aged in. And that's why you smell wine. So the next time You pour yourself a glass of wine. Before you take that sip, take a big sniff. [BLANK_AUDIO]
