Time for those spring wines

Wine is all about a sensory experience. We look first. We observe the color and clarity of a given wine. Then we use the old proboscis and smell the wines, taking all the different aromas into our olfactory memories. Next, we taste. We sip and swirl the elixir in and around our palates and then make the determination about what we are gulping. Do we like it or not? Well sound aside, the last sense we can use and should use is touch. No, don’t stick your fingers into the glass. Think more about a textural sense. What does the wine “feel like” on your tongue – your palate?
