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: 14.5%

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

Garnacha Tintorera is known for its deep color and here it coats the glass and imparts aromas of brooding black fruits, licorice, espresso and pepper. Dense, savory and rich.

Paella, pasta, (noodles, spaghetti, macaroni), vegetables, mushroom, stewed meat, sausage, pork, roast meat, red and/or white meat with sauces, grilled meat, short or medium cheeses.

Blend: 75% Garnacha Tintorera, 25% Monastrell

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Laya does not own quite the same clarity on the nose as the 2010; it is a little creamier with lifted dark plum scents. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity, the 2011 more elegant and refined than the previous vintage, blessed with fine tannins and tension towards the dark plum and boysenberry finish. Overall, this should turn out to be the better wine."
89 Points

"Bright violet color. Spicy cherry and black raspberry on the fragrant, spice-accented nose, with complicating notes of black pepper and smoky oak. Chewy, taut dark berry flavors show very good depth and appealing sweetness. Tannins build on the juicy, spice-accented finish, which is sharply focused and nicely persistent. This wine offers outstanding value."
