The "concept of taste "means as much as taste. About anything else is too. Please do not make it science. To drink wine in the first place make joy.
Anyone can taste wine without prior knowledge
Imagine, you are prompted for a meal, as it will taste good. No one would reply to get the idea: "I do not know. For that I am familiar with too little food. "Just as unbiased as you say, if you taste a meal or not, can and should make it the same with wine. Anyone can taste wine and assessed. Why not?
However, it is helpful to know what you can look for when wine tasting, to recognize for yourself why a wine tastes, to exchange ideas about it with others and to know the next time the wine merchant, in which direction you go on through the would like to try out wide world of wines. Whether a one wine tastes or not, this case depends on the following criteria:
Sounds a paradox that affects the appearance of the wine with, whether you like it. In fact, it's it that way. A beautifully presented but also oriented food tastes better than a loveless thrown on a plate meal.
Make sure if a wine is clear or cloudy, or even more dull.
Then you look at the color depth. This wine is deep red or yellow gold makes it strong, but have in mind a better impression than a wine with a pale, nondescript color.
Hue is also important. He makes references to the age of the wine (it is more towards browns, the more mature example is a red wine) and also on the type of removal.
Once you are aware of the wine looked on clarity, color and tint, you take once a strong nose. Smell the wine. If the nose is pleasant and reintÃ¶nig, or there are disturbing elements in it?
If the nose vigorously or barely noticeable?
Can you possibly even associate certain fruits or other odors? She remembers the nose more like fruit, of flowers, vegetables, spices, wood, or a horse stable (the latter sounds strange, but is in fact often).
If the odor spectrum more varied and exciting or boring?
All this determines whether you smell nice, or rather not found. There are wines that smell like nothing, others are so pleasant and varied that it would only ever smell to it, while others have an almost repulsive nose.
To enhance the perceived odor, you can move the glass in a circular motion around the inner wall of the glass completely wet with wine. If you spill a little afraid to leave your glass just on the surface of the table top circle.
In the mouth
After you have enjoyed your nose (hopefully), you take a sip. Quiet large, so that the mouth is filled. How do you feel now?
The wine tastes like water neutral, or you have a mouthful of wine?
Can you sweetness feel?
When the wine sparkling (as in the mineral water)?
Feel the acid? The acid is sour? Or smooth and harmonious? If the acid is strong or weak rather?
Especially in red wines, you may feel the tannins (tannins). In young red wines, tannin tannins experience the fact that your tongue and your palate are furry and numb. Tannins can be coarse or fine. Just compare different wines - I think pretty soon you'll know what I mean.
In the mouth you can feel bitterness. A wine can act alcoholic (like brandy).
I think a wine tastes to you then, if all components are in a reasonable relationship exists. Not too much or too little acid, not too much nor too little tannins, not too much nor too little sweetness, etc. If the "mix" is true, then you taste the wine. This is called a balanced and well-balanced wine.
The famous outlet
From the outlet is always mentioned when it comes to the evaluation of wine. One can also say "Length", "echo" or "sustainability". The latter is true in my opinion the best. It's simply a question of how lasting an impression of the wine in your mouth (not throat) leaves. How long will it take before the effect wears off and the flavors to normal salivary flow. The outlet can be measured in seconds. These products range from none to 10 or 20 seconds. The longer, more lasting the experience, the better the wine.

Book recommendation on
As far as some first indication of what you can look for when tasting wine to experience the wine-conscious. There is a wonderful little book by Kurt gable in which is described in more detail and more concretely, it simply means "to taste wines." This book I can really recommend.
