What Is Finish?

The ‘finish’ of a wine is the final impression it leaves you with after a sip.

It can be long and lingering, crisp and clean, short and simple — but generally the longer and the more complex a finish is, the higher-quality the wine. This doesn’t mean shorter finishes indicate poor quality, though; oftentimes, wines specifically meant to be drunk young will finish this way, while wines that have been aging will skew on the longer side. Both can be memorable and scrumptious!
