Evaluating Wine Flavor through Chemical and Sensory Analyses

A Symposium Honoring Dr. Ann C. Noble

To honor Dr. Noble for her outstanding research in the areas of wine sensory, wine flavor chemistry and wine sensometrics, and to demonstrate its on-going significance and relevance, eight of her colleagues, many former students, have been chosen to discuss the groundbreaking facets of her investigations, the importance of her contributions to sensory science and the wine industry, and how Dr. Noble’s research served as a springboard for their own research.

Topics will include the following:

  • Creation of the Wine Aroma Wheel
  • Discrimination tests and descriptive analysis
  • Perceptual studies of bitterness and astringency
  • Analysis of sulfur compounds and glycosidic flavor precursors
  • Investigations into consumer behavior
  • Application of time-intensity and multivariate statistical techniques for sensory analysis
