Intermediate Wine Tasting: Tannins in Wine

Wine tasting is a craft that takes time to learn, and lots of very pleasant practice! But all enjoyment aside, the nature of identifying aromas and flavors in wine is naturally elusive, and is a constant work in progress. We go beyond the basics of aroma to break down the why behind the what!

Tannins are a telling structural element found in red wines that can reveal volumes about varietals. We taste through three reds as we discuss where tannins come from and what they say about individual wines.
