How should you taste? All five senses are involved in wine tasting. Our eyes perceive the colour, clarity, viscosity, and effervescence of a wine. The nose senses the wine's bouquet and aroma. Within the mouth, three senses interact forming the complex perception known as taste. These are: smell as discerned by the retronasal passages, taste as appreciated by the taste buds and tactile sensations felt in the oral cavity. The sense of hearing permits us to enjoy the fizzing of effervescence and the popping of corks as well as the buzz of friendly conversation.
