This term will describe how tart a wine is (or isn't). You may also hear other similar words such as crisp and bright or flabby.
Just because a wine is described as vintage doesn't mean that it's old. It can also mean that the wine was made from grapes that were all (or mostly) harvested in a single year. A non-vintage wine is, obviously, grapes that were harvested over two or more years.
This word describes how heavy or full wine feels in your mouth. The body of a wine can be light, medium or full-bodied.
This term is used to describe red wines with a cooked fruit flavor
There are bitter compounds in the skin and seeds of grapes that give red wine structure. (White wines have little to no tannins as they're typically not fermented on the skins.) You will typically desire some tannins in the flavor of the wine, but generally overly tannic wines can cause a drying sensation in your mouth.
Terrior refers to how a growing region affects the wine's flavor. It's mostly used to describe wine, but it can also apply to cheese, coffee beans and other foods.
