During the olfactory analysis of wine, the sommeliers often evoke bizarre scents, that make them sound like aliens, a bit boastful.
Let me make some example: the scent of some New Zealand Cabernet Sauvignon, reminds us of green pepper salad, we then describe the Rhine Riesling Mosel as wines with a strong smell of hydrocarbons and gunpowder, and in red wines, aged in barrels for a long time, we can perceive hints of nail polish. At the height of strangeness, in some French wines, particularly in Sauvignon blanc, we smell "cat pee".
