Smaller molecules join together during the molecular process of polymerization to generate bigger ones. Simple amino acids combine, or polymerize, into very long chains to form proteins, some of which serve as enzymes, in all living things.

Simpler phenolics combine to form more complex tannin polymers and colored tannins as wine ages, and eventually these larger tannins become so large that they fall at the bottom of a wine bottle as sediment.
