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

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

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

Dark cherry red. Intense nose of ripe fruit (cassis) and comfit fruit mixed with sensations of toasted coffee and licorice which bring finesse and elegance. Strength, savory and opulence combine in the palate of this wine that little by little develops in the bottle.

Critical Acclaim

"Opaque purple. Explosive aromas of candied dark berries, cherry-vanilla, incense and woodsmoke, with an exotic floral topnote. Lush and creamy, offering sweet, oak-spiced blackberry and cassis flavors that are given spine by gentle acidity. Dusty tannins make a late appearance and add shape to the long, sappy, alluringly perfumed finish."
93 Points

"Opaque to the eye, this has a bouquet that's tightly sealed with aromas of oak, tobacco and cola, and a baked, minty note. Saturated but not syrupy, this has roasted, savory flavors of clove, nutmeg, hickory and baked blackberry. It remains roasted, deep and delicious on the finish. This is entirely modern, full bodied and excellent as a whole."

Other Red Red wines are certainly not limited to Cabernet and Pinot Noir - or even Nebbiolo and Grenache.
