Conclusion: It's time to say Good-Bye with a toast!
Now that you've been through all the nine models, discovered key concepts of viticulture and oenology, soundbite, and NAMIC practices and even phone applications to taste better. Now, you know how to perform a tasting sequence and assess wine on sight, smell, taste, and texture. Try to be present once you taste any new bottle, grape or region, and you will discover more and more nuances. Funny enough modern terminology to describe wines, its classifications and our wine preferences in general is not as new as we might think it is. Original translations from Asian Greek sources have shown to the researchers that 2000 years ago, types of comments and opinions about given wines were pretty much the same as they are today.
So, explore new tastes, research and enjoy.
Because the more, you know, the better you taste cheers.
