“Hi Karen, When youthful, tannins can be astringent/agressive (make the mouth feel very dry, grippy, chewy or even rough like sandpaper) and often mask delicate flavours in a wine. As a wine ages tannins soften and as a result provide a smoother drinking experience. When I say the tannins are "tight" I mean they are assertive (but not overwhelming) and show their youth. So if I'm going to drink the wine in the short-term I'd prefer it with food as food will absorb the tannin and balance the experience. If I choose to hold onto the wine I'll be rewarded with a smoother, more evolved wine.”

“Hi Nelson, When you were tasting the La Mozza, what did you mean by the "tannins are tight? What exactly are you describing/tasting when you say that?”
