Wine Wisdoms #32: How Sweet It Is?

Sweet Wine

People often make the mistake of perceiving a fruity, red wine, as a sweet wine. We are used to associating flavors of plum, strawberry, and cassis present in many red wines, with the sweet fruits that they come from. This can cause confusion. Most wine, (with the exception of dessert wines like Port, ice wine, Sauternes, Tokaji and late-harvest Riesling)  are not sweet, no matter how fruity and full-bodied they are. Some may have a higher sugar content than others, but most table wines are “dry” as we perceive them. Cabernet Sauvignon is dry as is Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah etc. Don’t be fooled!
