Middle, mid-palate

Another technical term (see also "attack" and "finish" or "aftertaste") for the sequence of sensations as the wine hits your palate. This alludes to the impression between first taste and swallowing; you'll sometimes hear a wine described as having "a hole in the middle" if the mid-palate impression isn't up to the attack or the finish.
