I’ll never get to be a sommelier. Party because I refuse to use their descriptive terms.
Fruit flavours — Like a smoothie? Next, they will be adding a thickness scale.
Leather. I’ve never chewed leather, so I have no idea how to relate to this. And, are they referring to leather jackets, shorts, or shoes?
Dense … so are some of my cousins, but I don’t refer to them when I’m talking about wine.
Awkward and Backward. Please see dense.
Spineless and flabby (tannins) – I don’t even talk about my friends that way – why would I refer to wine in those terms?
Has Legs. Of course it does, or it would be able to stand up. Are we soon going to start talking about ears and elbows and ankles too?
Sensory assault and Aggressive. Are we supposed to pack an Uzi for self protection when we go to a tasting?
Meaty. Let’s leave the food on the plate and the wine in the glass.
Nutty. Has Backbone. Brilliant. Heady. Lush. Spicy. Oh … I’m supposed to be talking about wine and not The Gurlz? Sorry. I digress.
Hopefully, the chart below will help your descriptions.
