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.

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.
