Red wines typically fall into two different categories: red fruit and black fruit flavors. Red wine blends are a mix of red and black flavors. Most 'black fruit' flavored red wines are full-bodied red wines with all the associated extra tannins, body and complexity.
This can mean a wine with aromas and flavor reminiscent of earth, such as forest floor or mushrooms. It can also refer to the drying impression felt on the palate caused by high levels of earthy compounds that occur naturally in grapes.
