What am I tasting?

Every two weeks, we post a real Wine Spectator tasting note. Read the description carefully, noting the color, tastes, aromas and other important clues.

Then, figure out the correct answers in four multiple-choice categories: Variety, Country or Region of Origin, Approximate Age, and Appellation. Submit your guess and check the answer. Good luck!


Tasting note

Posted: January 11, 2019 Showy, with layers of warmed fig, roasted mesquite, black tea, incense and Turkish coffee notes, followed by waves of lush cassis, blackberry and raspberry confiture flavors. This has a graphite grounding rod, a tarry spine and riveting licorice snap details to keep it driving along. A head-turner for sure.
