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

Here's a fruit-forward, velvety Cabernet Sauvignon that's perfect to pour with gourmet hamburgers, barbecued steak, spice-rubbed roast pork or whatever fits your mood. You'll find that lush plum, cassis (black currant), chocolate, spice and cedar notes fill this wine's aromas and soft, easy-to-enjoy flavors. Our Cab's supple tannins provide enough structure to pair with red meats, yet its fruity flavors also complement roast duck or turkey with cranberry sauce.

Style: Earthy & Spicy
Sipped through 4 ozs with my steak tonight, and after I was done eating went through another 8 ozs. Enjoyed it very much. I think for the money, you will like it very much. The company's description is accurate, and the previous reviewer's comment is accurate too. The wine is definately OK. I am calling it earthy and spicey.

One look and Fernande was in heaven - she exclaimed Beaulieu! which means beautiful place in French. That is how BV or...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
