Wine Finish

So we're at the finish line finish!

As much as wine lovers would love it to be socially acceptable to simply hold and swish wine in the mouth for hours on end...we know its impractical (okay, its also socially akward...).

But who wants to give up on all those great wine flavors? No one.

That's why a pleasant and memorable aftertaste is so important.

Unlike water, wine always has an aftertaste, a finish - however long or short.

The better the wine finish, the longer the wine's flavor and tastes linger in your mouth and memory after swallowing a sip.

As a wine quote from Maynard A. Amerine goes:

"The fine wine leaves you with something pleasant; the ordinary wine just leaves."
