Red wine is a drink that most people enjoy in their daily life as well as on different occasions. Since the red wines are crafted from various grapes, they offer an unending expansion of flavors and textures that inspire every wine lover. The diversity of grapes colors gives a red wine a unique red shade we encounter in liquor shops. Depending on the type of grapes and how long the skin was left in with the grape juice before being extracted, red wine color ranges from intense violet, dark red, ruby red, brick red, opaque purple, among other colors.
The different types of red wines are usually judged by their color, body, and level of sweetness. The wine body describes the weight in your mouth, powerful, bold, playful, and delicate. There is the light-bodied wine, medium-bodied red wine, and full-bodied red wines.
Light-bodied red wines - lighter, not too demanding on the mouth, contain less tannin, and have fruity characteristics.
Medium-bodied red wines - slightly heavier but not as heavy and powerful as full-bodied wine. Many medium-bodied red wines, especially from France, are fruity and generally soft.
Full-bodied red wines - Full-bodied wines are denser and have higher alcohol content. Rich and intense flavors usually characterize them. The intensive flavors make these wines heavy to the palate, perfect for sipping.
Red wine types are very famous in Kenya and the world due to their health benefits. It is the healthiest type of alcoholic beverage. When taken in moderation, it is beneficial to the body in several ways. It contains Anti-oxidants such as resveratrol, which is good for health.

Sweet red wine & dry red wine
The best quality sweet red wine has no sugar added. The sweetness of wine is formed by halting the fermentation before it completes allowing the accumulation of residual sugars from the grapes, giving the wine a sweet taste. Red wines, white wines, or rose wines can either be sweet or dry and with varying tannin concentration, causing a palate detection of varying tastes. For the dry wines the fermentation process is allowed to complete. Also, the tannins, and acidity in wine, lower the sugar levels. The tannin levels increase with increased time in which the grape skins remain in contact with the juice and the grape variety — the higher tannins in wine, the lower the sugar levels. Due to skin contact, most red wines have tannic characteristics which add to their complexity in flavor. Dry red wine usually has higher levels of tannins.

Pinotage is South Africa's signature grape. It is a cross of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut grapes, first crossed in South Africa in 1925 by Abraham Perold. Pinotage wines have a dense color and a bold flavor with vibrant notes of plum, blackberry, licorice, tobacco and tar. It is a perfect red wine pair with barbecue.

Most Zinfandel wine is juicy, fruity, with raspberry, cherry, and blackberry flavors. Zinfandel wines alcohol content is generally high, and it is lower in tannin.
Red wine food pairing
Diverse styles and structure of red wine make it the ideal choice for pairing with food. Different regions produce classic red wines with firm structure and robust flavors that are excellent with different dishes. For the best result, matching the wine's weight and tannins concentration with the food richness leads to a wonderful and harmonious wine-food pairing. Fuller-bodied red wines generally pair well with denser and heavier meals such as steak and pasta. Lighter bodied reds pair well with lighter foods such as chicken, seafood, and vegetable dishes.
Serving red wine
Red wine is best served in special glasses that are oval or egg-shaped. This glass allows the wine to breathe and swirl better. Serve red wine at 60-65 °F. When served too hot, the alcohol can be overemphasized. If too cold, it will taste bitter and numb the flavors.
