Description for the smell and/or taste of a wine in the context of a wine evaluation or wine address. However, the term is to be understood in the context of the description and can be both positive and negative. Possible characteristics are expressive or expressive-strong (positive), as well as weakly expressive, poorly expressive, expressionless or also colourless (negative). Related terms for expressionless are haggard, thin, insipid, decrepit, hollow, stale and outdated. Closely related components are character, body and structure.
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
