I have added a link to the Amazon product page for each resource, so you can read more details on each book.
Wine tasting is better mastered by practicing. However, you may want to go deeper on the topics discussed here at winetasting-demystified.com.
Please suggest in the comment boxes below other resources that you found useful and worthwhile to share with this community.
The section dedicated to Sensory Perceptions and Wine Assessment provides the fundamentals and practical applications of sensory methods to wine evaluation.
Wine Science is a well written textbook that I referred to often when teaching sensory evaluation of wine.
Managing Wine Quality is a technical book in which Ann C. Noble and I co-wrote a chapter on the sensory analysis of wine. I recommend it if you are student enologist or a wine professional interested to get information from renown academics.
For the scientists at heart!
I was just starting my journey as a sensory scientist and I read the Perfume (translated in French) in a couple of days. This is a reference on how descriptive words can evoke so vividly odors and aromas. As the reader, you are transported in the streets of Paris and I often had the illusion to smell what the author was describing.
More suggestions will be added soon. Add yours below.
