Description for a particularly alcohol-rich wine in the context of a wine address. This can be positive, depending on the expression, but also negative according to the context. If it is less pronounced, the "presence of alcohol" is described as vinous. Related terms, which also have positive connotations, are fiery, strong, heavy and powerful. The range can be from obtrusive to negative aggressive. A particularly strong and then negative expression is described as gangrenous (alcoholic, liquorice, hot).
