I ran across this article from Marshall Tilden at WineEnthusiast, and I really like how he explains the technical elements that determine a wine's flavor.

If you're new to wine, or interested in learning more about what you're tasting, check this out.

Is This Wine Any Good? The Five Most Important Structural Components to Know

Of course, now that you've learned some more about these structural components, you realize how tannins influence flavor over time and exposure to oxygen. It's the tannins in red wines that drive rapid flavor changes in open bottles of wine. A wine preserver that uses 100% argon to stop oxidation - like Silvadore Wine Preserver - is an important tool to enable you to enjoy better quality and better tasting wine at home.

Enjoy your new knowledge, AND your better tasting wine!!
