Style: Smooth & Supple

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

Intense garnet red with light brick-red tones on the rim. On the nose it unfolds from the first moment balsamic notes from the wood over a chocolate and coconut background, all of it surrounded with ripen red fruit preserve. It is quite obvious the tobacco and cedar wood presence as well. In the mouth it is full, slightly astringent and with a vivid acidity. Hints of cocoa and roasted wood strengthen, and the persistent finish create a mix difficult to describe: cigar box, fruit preserve, spices, liquorice, broom, leather.

It pairs perfectly with international food (curries, marinated fish and spicy dishes) and traditional red meats, game and cured cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Reserva is a blend of 90% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo from Rioja Alta that is aged for 20 months in American oak. It has a well-defined, very natural bouquet with dark cherries, bilberry, crushed violets and vanilla pod. The palate is well-balanced with silky smooth tannins, good acidity and a caressing, harmonious finish of truffle, strawberry, cassis and vanilla. This is a sensual Reserva that should age well. Drink now-2018."
