Welcome to another edition of Wine WTFs! In this series we’ll explore wine terms and ideas and try to figure out what the fuss is all about. Last time we talked about wtf the deal is with oak.
You know how it is. You’re over at a friend’s place or out for dinner and you’re sharing a bottle of wine. Things are great, conversation is flowing, and then you hear someone start talking about the wine.
“Ah, yes, the tannin in this wine is lovely.”
Oh yeah, totally, you think. You keep sipping.
… wait, what?
Seriously, wtf is the deal with tannin?
