 hot 

A sensory term used to describe wines with excessive ALCOHOL. Unless balanced with strong FRUIT, a high alcohol content creates a burning, prickly sensation in the mouth and throat. Whereas a "hot" sensation may be desirable in FORTIFIED wines such as PORT and SHERRY, it's not acceptable in most wines.
