More about this wine from Maule Valley, Chile
Tannin is one of the more strange parts of articulating the taste of a wine. Wine words like 'nose' and 'palate' seem relatively self-explanatory, but wth is a tannin — does it have a taste? A color?!? Well, we're lucky that this Cab has some serious tannin, and we hope it will help all of us better describe the wine we want to imbibe.

The simplest way to think about tannin is literally how sticky or how much grip the wine has on the inside of your cheeks. More grip usually means the wine will taste drier. The J. Bouchon will definitely grip the inside of your mouth and the straightforward juiciness and touch of spice and vanilla will linger so long they might need a lease near your tongue.
