Learning how to taste wine can be fun and adventurous for those that have developed an interest in wines unique scents and flavors.  For people that like to experiment with their taste buds,and  want to know about wine tasting then you need to read and follow these tips.

Environment
Before you venture on your interests of wine tasting, make sure that you're in the right wine tasting  environment.    Avoid places where it's crowded and noisy, cooking scents, pets, strong perfumes and household cleaning detergents, air fresheners, and dust can affect the natural taste, flavor, colour and scent of the wine.    If you should find yourself in this kind of atmosphere and environment, its best to stray away from that setting and find a more neuturally conditioned spot or place.

Glass
The Right Wine Glass will Maximize Your Wine Tasting Experience. Does the wine glass matter?  Yes the glass does matter.  If you use the wrong glass for wine tasting, it will affect the distinction of the aroma and taste;  so choose a thin lipped stemware.  If the glass is smeared or dusty and might not look too clean, avoid washing it with dishwashing liquids or any other kinds of dish cleaning detergents, or even water.  Instead give it a quick swirl with wine, making sure all sides are equally rinsed.



Colour
Evaluate the colour of the wine by looking down straight into the glass, then hold it up to get some exposure of light while examining its hue ; check for complexity and character. Give it a tilt as it seers timidly to the surface of the glass, keep checking its nuance clarity and range, which will help you to assess the depth, age, density and saturation of its contents.


Smell
After examining the wine with the eyes, it's now time to give the wine a good sniff.  Avoid plunging your nose into the wine glass, instead move the glass from side to side slightly underneath the nostrils, while getting a smell of the wine's aromas, giving you an understanding of the different scents that wines retain.  You want to process the aromatics  of wine smells that can add value to a wine tasting event.

Taste
Temperature of the wines and flavors from whatever else you’ve been eating or drinking can affect and impact on the taste, so you want to neutralize your taste buds, so the wine has a fair chance to stand on its own. The time has now come for you to taste!
Avoid taking large swallows. Finding all the fruits and scents can be fun.Take a sip sucking gently from the tip of your glass. Swirl and swish the wine, let it circulate throughout your mouth. The  three stages of taste you will encounter are the Attack, Evolution, and the Finish phase.  

Analysis
The wine taster will learn to look for specific fruits and grapes, and many grapes will deliver a wide range of fruity flavors.  You will also learn to detect Traces with mixtures of flowers, herbs, mints , and various others,most will follow right along where the aromas left off.  The taster is not only trying to find different flavors, but is also trying to determine if the wine is balanced, harmonised, complex, evolved, and complete.
