The finish of the wine is the taste that lingers in the mouth after swallowing or spitting out the wine. The longer this aftertaste, the better, provided it is the pleasant aromas that linger in the mouth, and not the sharp acids or unpleasant bitters. The length of the finish ranges from two to three seconds for an easy to drink wine, to ten seconds for great wine, or even more for exceptional vintages.
