Intensity

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

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.

Promontory is a prestigious Napa Valley winery known for its high-priced Cabernet Sauvignon. Acquired by the Harlan family in 2008, the property spans 840 acres in Oakville. Despite producing only one Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is a complex blend due to variations in soil, exposure, and elevation. Up to 70 passes are made through the vineyard to harvest fruit at the perfect ripeness, resulting in over 30 distinct component wines aged in barrels for a year before blending. The final blend ages for several more years in large Austrian oak casks. In 2017, a modern winery was opened, designed for both production and visitor experiences, in contrast to the family's other labels.
