  Certain words are used to describe various wines, and one of these words is "dry." These words are very inexact, and subjective. A gourmet will take a small taste of a wine, and 'roll' it around on his tongue or perhaps the top of his throat - and if it has a somewhat "dry" or tart taste, he...
  "Tannic" is an adjective usually used to describe red wines. If a wine is overly "tannic," then it is not a good wine. The term refers to "tannins," which are found in reds, that leave a dry taste in your mouth after you drink it.   Basically, the more tannins there are, the drier your...
