Swirl the wine in the glass to release the aromas. This practice is known as aerating, and helps mix the wine with air. Notice the droplets of moisture falling back into the glass. Strong and sweet wines stick to the glass, forming “legs” as they flow back into the wine. This is due to the higher alcohol level in certain wines, which adheres to the glass. Raise the glass to your nose and smell the aromas or bouquet of the wine. This is an important part of enjoying a glass of wine, as taste begins with smell.
