Wine'ing Wednesday: What is Tannin?


Example of Wines with ‘Soft Tannins:’ Merlot or Pino Nior

Example of a Wines with ‘Strong Tannins:’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah or Shiraz

Stronger tannins are found in red wines since both the color and tannins are due to exposure to the grape’s skin. In addition to creating a wine’s overall taste, tannins are also responsible for the cholesterol lowering and cancer fighter properties found in red wine.

Other foods that contain tannins: Teas, Cheese and Nuts

One of my favorite wineries is Alexander & Fitch. I happened to be well into a glass when I read the back of the bottle and found out Alexander was a Pennsylvanian by birth. So I did a lil googlin and found this. Perhaps a bit too much history (pet story! Ick!). Thought you might enjoy reading (some) of it:
