Wine Expert Note:

Cayuse Vineyards Impulsivo is an exceptional wine that showcases the unique characteristics of the Walla Walla Valley in Washington State. On the nose, Impulsivo offers enticing aromas of dark berries, black cherries, and hints of tobacco. These aromas are complemented by subtle notes of cedar and spice, adding depth and complexity to the wine. The palate is rich and full-bodied, with velvety tannins that provide a smooth and elegant mouthfeel. Flavors of ripe blackberries, plums, and dark chocolate dominate the palate, while well-integrated oak adds a touch of vanilla and a hint of smokiness. Impulsivo is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but it also has great aging potential. With its well-balanced structure and intense flavors, it will continue to develop and evolve over the years, revealing even more layers of complexity. Read more

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

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.
