Wine Tasting Speak

speak like an expert....

BODY - The weight and fullness of a wine. A full-bodied wine fills the mouth.                 COMPLEXITY - determined by the number of different flavor elements and undertones in a wine. CRISP - A fresh, young wine with good acidity - generally a white wine.                                        FINISH - The aftertaste or flavor that lingers in your mouth after the wine is swallowed.         MOUTH FEEL - How a wine feels in the mouth and against the tongue. An important part of the total wine tasting experience.                                                                                                             ROBUST - A full-bodied, intense and flavorful wine.                                                                TANNIN - Denotes flavors of leather and tea in a young wine. It gives a wine its firmness and gradually fades away as wine ages.
