Don't you love it when musical terms are used as wine descriptors?
What musical terms are used to describe wines? The word note first comes to mind. It’s used quite often to describe a flavor or aroma in a wine, most often a subtle quality. More specifically, sometimes a wine might have bass notes or top notes in their descriptions.
Other musical terms are used to describe wine. Harmonious is the most obvious and, similarly, if the flavors are well-balanced, we might describe them as being a chorus. Sometimes flavors crescendo or diminuendo, especially on the finish. An exuberant wine might sing!
Wine Jazz, & Song takes place in the Amistad Hall at the Porter Memorial at 75 Main Street (Route 10) in the historic district of Farmington, CT, just off Route 84 and 15 minutes from Hartford and Route 91. Click on the image to open Google maps for this location and to plan your route.
