tannic impression on palate reminding of furs (GB)
très tannique (F)
di pelo (I)

Description for a taste impression in the context of a wine address. For tannin-emphasized wines this is usually a typical characteristic. However, if the cause is an over-sulphurisation of the wine, this is to be evaluated as a wine defect. See also under astringent, sulphurous and dull.
