Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Red Schooner Voyage is an unusual red wine made by the owner of Napa Valley's Caymus. This wine is made from Malbec grapes grown in the Argentine region of Mendoza that are chilled after harvest prior to shipping to California for processing. While the origin of the fruit is unusual, the winemaking is the same as other wines in the Caymus stable. This is a rich, opulent style of Mlabec with a full body and polished tannins for what can be a rustic variety. This is something for drinkers who love the extreme variety that wine provides.
