Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot 20% Syrah and other red grape varieties.

Intense ruby red color. Well-defined and fresh on the nose, with aromas of red fruit followed by complex notes of sweet spices and hints of menthol. On the palate, the wine is soft, with wonderfully silky tannins highlighting delicate hints of fruit and a long, satisfying finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This is a lovely wine (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and other grapes) that shows very attractive softness in the mouth backed by a velvety texture and fine tannins. Black fruit, tobacco, spice and leather accent the bouquet: Pair it with black truffle Cornish hen."
91 Points

"Deep red-ruby. Raspberry, pomegranate, mocha and herbs on the lively, inviting nose. Supple on entry, then chewy in the middle, with flavors of spicy red fruits, quinine, strawberry-rhubarb pie and tamarind framed by well-integrated acidity. Finishes ripe and smooth, with a dusting of aromatic herbs. Tasted three different times with inconsistent results: one bottle rated 91 points, another 90, and a third was disappointing and did not warrant an outstanding score. I'll give this wine the benefit of the doubt, since one bottle really was extremely impressive."
