Ever wonder what the heck wine writers are talking about when they describe the nose of a wine? Like, how about that buttery thing that goes on with some of the wines you love. What is up with that?
Well, almost all of the weird descriptors for a wine's nose have some basis in fact, though I am as guilty as the next guy in using a little bit of fantasy when extolling the virtues of my current favorite bottle, like calling the aromas the nose! While rhapsodic prose might be over the top, and best saved for more intimate settings, some of these wine nose descriptors are worth learning more about!
