Wine Wheel

The Aroma vs. Bouquet Wheel

A wine wheel is a visual tool used to assist the taster to identify and distinguish flavors and aromas. 

The wheel is sectioned for initial broad categorization into styles and then each section is further divided into more specific traits.

This particular wheel has a central divide that separates the aromas from the bouquet. Please note that this is not a perfect science, as certain characteristics can come from either the grape (aromas) as well as from the fermentation/maturation process (bouquet), but the vast majority are definitively from one or the other.

Used in conjunction with the Rs form, this wheel can enhance one's wine tasting ability through use and practice.

Enjoy it, with my compliments.
