For both casual and avid wine drinkers alike, tasting notes are an important barometer in gauging how likely one is to enjoy that particular wine. While the memory of tasting wines may last for several days, when you frequently taste many wines in a short period of time, they can be hard to accurately remember down to the last detail. Of course, the best and worst wines almost always stick out, but the vast majority of wines fall somewhere in between. This is why it's important to take useful tasting notes.
Be sure to include the details:
Make sure to include the aromas and flavors as well. This is where tasters tend to obsess the most about their notes, given the almost limitless number of descriptors that can be used to describe a particular flavour. This is where a wide range of vocabulary comes in handy. If you label every note describe a wine as 'plum' or 'herbal', it will be it harder to tell them apart when you revisit them in future. Consider subcategories of common terms - fruit, for example, can be broken down into citrus fruits, melon, pit fruits, seed fruits and tropical fruits. Other things to note are whether the aromas and flavours are subtle or powerful, and whether or not they change in the glass.
