 spicy 

A analogous winetasting term for the lively, fragrant aroma and flavor of some wines. It's an umbrella term that may cover any of many spices including allspice, cinnamon, cloves, mace, nutmeg, and pepper. This spicy characteristic is usually related to the grape (GEWÜRZTRAMINER has a lot of spiciness) but can also come from the wine's contact with new oak barrels.
