6 Amazing Tasting Notes from Drync Users

February 20, 2015

Writing tasting notes can seem like just so much work when you’re enjoying your wine. However, it is worth taking the time to jot down your thoughts on your sips, for a number of reasons.

Taking the time to assess the sights, scents, and sensations with the wines that you love, or don’t love, will allow you to identify what you want from a wine.

Taking notes is a great way to actively remember what you are drinking. Also making notes about where and with whom you enjoyed a bottle will make it even easier to remember. Drync makes it easy to track all of this info in one place.

And contrary to popular belief wine-tasting is not for serious connoisseurs and professionals only: anyone can write an awesome tasting note. We recently had a contest among our users to see who could write the best tasting note, and we got hundreds of awesome entries. Here is a handful of some of our favorites, along with the wines they enjoyed. Check out this blog post if you want to learn how to take amazing tasting notes of your own.

Tomassi-Amarone-Valpolicella2009 Tommasi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Tasting Note
“Amarone della Valpolicello is a wine that touches one soul! This wine has a sweetness which complements its dry full bodied flavor. This makes one understand the word contemplative. It is rich and smooth and so it becomes a temptress for one to drink it day in and day out! Amarone pairs well with autumnal food but it is also the finishing touch to a late summer dessert! It is the ultimate wine which best describes the yin and yang of its velvety fermented and delicious grapes from the Veneto region! Cento Anni!”

Chateau Musar 1989 1989 Chateau Musar Rouge Bekaa Valley Tasting note
“This is the wine that made me drink wine. When I first stuck my nose in it the smell alone brought me right back to a very specific Bedouin village halfway between Jerusalem and Jericho. It was probably the smell of goat dung and asphalt. Yeah, I know, but in a good way. Seriously. I was an anti-wine snob before this and now I’m writing reviews on Drync, so go figure… I’m just saying – go get a bottle. You won’t regret it!”

Plungerhead Cabernet Sauvignon2012 Plungerhead Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting note
“Do you need to:-Drown sorrows?
-Celebrate a promotion?
-“Wine down” from a long day at work?
-Take a “Mommy Minute?”
-Bro out with your Merlot out?If you answered yes to any of the above, then this is the wine for you! Yes, this wine tastes good, but it is SO much more than that. It will take you where you emotionally need to go. Enjoy the ride. And please drink responsibly.”

McManis Cabernet Sauvignon2013 McManis Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting note
“I love this wine for the same reasons I love my man/husband/valentine: RICH – well the wine is but my hubs not so much – but let’s move on. FULL BODIED. DRY- he has such a sense of humor and wit. And finally AROMATIC -he and the wine have a wonderful bouquet and last but not least SMOOTH – my guy and wine are smooth as silk. Try the wine you will love it! The man is mine for 29 years now!”

Baumard Savenieres2008 Domaine Des Baumard Savenieres Tasting note
“Light gold color. Tons of depth on the nose: juicy yellow apple, asian pear, honey, white flowers, buttery toast, nuts. Saline and stone minerality on the palate. Full body but finishes clean with good acidity and a long finish.”

Cinq Cepages<ahref=”https://www.drync.com/bottles/1995-chateau-st-jean-cinq-cepages”>1995 Chateau St Jean Cinq Cepages Tasting note
“Love this wine! Our first experience with a well crafted wine many years ago, it introduced us to a new way of viewing specially crafted wines. And we still have a ’92 with the $19 price sticker still intact! Every bottle still brings us back to a romantic evening.”
~Tom B
