Term for the taste of mostly red wines in the context of a wine address. The higher alcohol content thus gives a wine expression, fullness and power. However, this can also refer to the ruby red, bright colour. If there is an excess of alcohol, this is negatively referred to as brandy-like or pungent. Related terms are alcoholic and peppery, and to some extent also powerful, mighty, heavy and bulky.
