As in “this wine has height in the mouth,” which it does, mostly because we live in a three-dimensional world, which I have to admit I am thankful for. I hear there are additional universes with additional dimensions but, as we’re finding out, it’s difficult enough writing about wine in three dimensions, four if you include the 48.76 seconds the finish on this wine lasts.
Height in the mouth sort of describes how the flavors distinguish themselves in the mouth, which for the most part seems to be by getting their asses kicked by the forward fruit. Look out, here comes the supporting tannins! Boom!
