My notes (collective summary of 6 wine tasters' notes at a dinner party. Food paring: cheese and cold cuts appetizer, pig-in-a-blanket, primavera pasta, clam Rockefeller, Korean style BBQ bone-in beef, and Thai style fried rice): Color: very light red Bouquet: light flowery aroma that does not last long, quickly dissipates. If you can smell the flowery aroma on the 3rd try, then you really have a sensitive nose. Taste: unimpressive; cannot detect its taste when paired with food. Alone, one can taste a bit of the fruit, earth, and licorice.
