Let's find out how you like your wines. This will be fun. Really.

Read the descriptions below and tell us whether it's a type of wine that you "Love," "Occasionally" like to drink or "Never" drink.

Keep in mind that depending on the region and the winemaker, the same grapes can be cultivated and made into wine using vastly different styles. So, for example, Cabernet Franc grapes in the Loire Valley, which are characteristically made into light bodied wines, will be very different from Cabernet Franc grapes in Washington state, which are typically made into rich, bold wines.

Let's get started.
  • White Wines

  • Easy drinking, with fruity notes and floral aromas, sometimes evoking an impression of sweetness or semi-sweetness because of higher residual sugar and lower alcohol levels . Examples: Moscato, Riesling, certain Chenin Blancs and Gewurtztraminer.
  • Aromatic, crisp and refreshing; often tart, tropical, and minerally. Examples: Picpoul de Pinet, Muscadet (Melon de Bourgogne), Sauvignon Blanc, Albariño, Pinot Gris, Verdejo and, focusing on aromatics, some Rieslings.
  • Creamy, nutty, with ripe stone fruit flavors, often aided by oak ageing and buttery characteristics. Rich, hearty, bold whites. Examples: Chardonnay, Marasanne-Rousanne blends (Rhone), Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Macabeo, Viognier and Pinot Blanc.
  • Red Wines

  • Reds with lower levels of tannin and oak. They tend to be easy drinking and softer on the palate. Whether earthy, fruity or acidic, they usually reflect the characteristics of their origin or terroir. Examples: Loire Valley Cabernet Francs, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Gamay, some Zinfandels.
  • Not light, not full bodied, but somewhere in between, with an equal balance of tannin and acid, creating a satisfying mouthfeel. These wines tend to be the most food-friendly. Examples: Grenache, Carménère, Carignan and Barbera.
  • Big reds with higher alcohol (13.5% and higher). Full-bodied, multi-layered with complex flavors. Warm climate reds such as Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.
  • Peppery, often expressing aromas and flavors of baking spices like cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg from being aged in oak barrels. Examples: Northern Rhone Syrahs, Spanish Tempranillos, California Zinfandels. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah.
