Reply to "Tannins"

A sensible answer for detecting tannins. (I will leave well enough alone.)

Can someone help me with Indybob's suggestion to head to the best wine store in my area, Orange County, CA.?

A sensible question, and I agree with Irwin, tough to define. Head to the best wine store in your area and buy two different makers' 2004 red Bordeaux. $20 bottles will be fine. In one, most likely both, you'll taste robust tannin in effect. Always best to have your own definition.

While it's not Cab, but a Sangiovese clone, If you have a bit of cash, most 2001 Brunello di Montalcinos (from Italy's Tuscan region) should do. Try a Frescobaldi Castelgiocondo.
