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: 15.9%

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

Black, deep and intense color with nose of ripe black fruit, blackberries, black pepper and plum. Plenty of volume and powerful in the mouth. Round, with lots of tannins, but with finesse and harmony. A wine that is powerful and at the same time refined. Best paired with osso bucco, lamb, strong cheeses, roasted walnuts, and other hearty fare.

Critical Acclaim

"I reviewed the 2007 Colome Malbec Reserva last year. It was presented again in this year’s tasting so I am repeating my note and adding one point to the score (and the price has increased by $10). Colome's old-vine cuvee is one of Argentina’s icon Malbecs. The 2007 Reserva is 100% Malbec sourced from a 17-acre plot of 60- to 150-year-old vines purchased by owner, Donald Hess, in 2001. The wine spent 24 months in new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it has that extra dimension of complexity that only old vines can provide. It offers up a confiture of black cherry and black raspberry along with mineral notes and toasty new oak. Dense, layered, concentrated, this rich, impeccably balanced effort will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring and drink well through 2030."
96 Points

"Bright saturated ruby. Pungent, high-toned aromas of blackberry, maraschino cherry, black pepper and violet. Sharply delineated, youthfully imploded but not hard, displaying explosive inner-mouth perfume and energy to the very pure dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. Gets silkier as it opens in the glass, showing some suggestions of superripe fruit, but without any loss of clarity or lift. A powerful yet fine-grained and very subtle wine, finishing with suave tannins and superb cut and lift. Donald Hess's project involving some of the highest vineyards in the world is coming to spectacular fruition."

Learn About Argentina

(ahr-jen-TEE-nah) Now fifth in the world for wine production, Argentina is catching up in the quality wine sector. A long time wine producer, Argentina used to make wine in order to drink it, not export it. And so the wines produced were quaffable and rustic and made for the local's everyday dinner. Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...
