Wine Term of the Week

LENGTH & FINISH: Length is a tasting term to describe how long the taste stays on your palate after taking a sip of wine. It is measured in seconds and it can be short/medium or long. A long finish means that the flavor of the wine lingered for at least 8 seconds. If it was elegant or smooth and continuous then the wine had a good long finish. It is not necessarily related to quality. I have had wines that I wished finished very fast and left my palate ASAP 🙂
