I must have messed up....
when I taste my wines early... they are mostly "new" taste...
what else am I looking for?
I have made mostly dry reds from kits so maybe the tasting is a fruit thingy..... sorry

Are you maybe looking for something like this?

http://wine.about.com/od/winebasic1/ht/winetasting.htm

I know that when I first started getting into wine, I could say "I like that wine", or "That wine is good, but it's not for me". As you drink more and more your palate will expand and you'll be able to pick out the earthy, mineraly, vegetal, fruit, vanilla, etc. aromas and flavours.

Try this link as well, it may help you with the language of the palate:

All above is true. But, tasting in all the stages in winemaking you can see how it transforms from grape/fruit to wine. Tasting before bottling you can detect some off flavors and correct them before its to late.
