Finish – Wine Term of the Week

Finish - Wine Term of the WeekFinish is a fancy word for aftertaste. If a wine has a “long finish” that means that the flavor lingers for awhile. After you swallow the wine (or spit it out), finish is the final impression of a wine’s taste. If you are a follower of Robert Parker’s wine ratings, the length of the finish is one of the components, usually measured in seconds.
