Taste profile

Primary flavors

Blueberry

While some wines smell remarkably blue, only a few wines taste distinctly of the actual blueberry fruit. Instead the flavor can often be found hiding in layers of taste, swirled amongst other fruits in a decidedly delicious blue concoction of floral sweetness and acidity.

Blackberry

Blackberry is a primary fruit aroma found in red wine and often tastes earthy and rustic, sometimes with a sweet edge.

Plum

The flavors of Plums can span from red to black, from freshness to sweetness to Prunes. Red Plum flavors are found in easy-drinking red wines. Black Plum flavors are found in full bodied red wines.

Secondary flavors

Earthy Notes

Earthiness is an umbrella term for aroma and flavour compounds suggestive of mushrooms, vegetation, wet leaves, graphite, tobacco plants, herbs, potting soil, root vegetables, and hay bales. Usually most commonly found in red wines and only sometimes in whites.

Forest floor

Forest floor in wine is traditionally a tertiary aroma that comes from ageing a bottle in some red wines. It's associated with similar notes of mushroom and leather which can develop over time. You might also find a wine that is described as 'earthy' will have a smell of wet forest floor.
