I work in DTC and write and/or edit most of the tasting notes for the our wines. Looking for some other ways to say "on the palate" to avoid sounding redundant. "Character" and "on the tongue" have been tossed out; any one have other ways to phrase "palate"? Thanks in advance!
Just distinguish the nose/aromas from flavors and texture. "The nose was showed nicely with ____ up front with more subtle notes of _____. Upon tasting revealed flavors of _____ with a ______ texture and _______ finish."
Honestly I wish every wine writer just used a formula exactly like this. I'm bigger on information that prose but I guess it does sap some of the romance out of it. Just throw in "Perfect for a (insert season) day and enjoying while (doing seasonal thing) with close friends."
That is a succinct and useful note. I prefer to use "aromas" for nose and "flavors" for taste, as well. I am also learning to employ adjectives to describe the structural components of body, texture, acid, alcohol, rs, tannin, etc.
