"Nose" is the wine fancy pants word for the smell of the wine in the glass. We have talked before about how 80% of taste is smell, so the "nose" is a super important step in your enjoyment of wine. You want to swirl the wine to get air in it and the aroma to rise, and then put your nose in the glass deeply inhale! (No, you don't have put your whole nose in, unless you want to!)
