    What is meant by texture? It's a popular term of wine reviewers.

    I think texture in wine reviews means pretty much the same as common English- what does it feel like. Pretty much only used with modifiers- smooth texture, velvety texture, silky texture, rough texture, grainy texture. An *attempt* to describe what the wine feels like in one's mouth.

    Quite.

    High alcohol wines tend to feel more viscous, or heavier if you like.

    Other physical sensations that could be described as texture are due to
    astringency - from precipitation of solids as a result of the reaction
    of tannins with saliva.
