Aroma wheel

In the mid-1980s, Professor Ann C. Noble (*1935) at the University of California in Davis (USA) developed a so-called "Aroma Wheel". In connection with a sensory research project, the scientist had discovered that there was no uniform terminology for describing wines. The aim was to use the Aroma Wheel to create a terminology that is as generally understandable and usable as possible, with which the smell or aroma of a wine can be defined or described as unambiguously as possible in the context of a wine evaluation or wine description. The aroma wheel is equally suitable for professional tasters and laymen.
