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: 14.4%

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

Structurally, this wine feels as if it is built on bedrock. It is powerful, deep, intense and brooding. It only hints at the layers of complexity folded into its framework. There are fresh forest pine/menthol, blue fruit and baking spice aromas. Lively acidity gives the palate a harmonious balance, and the tannins go on and on.

Blend: 52% Cabernet Franc and 48% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"Enticing aromas of raspberry, dark chocolate and spices. Densely packed yet at the same time juicy and lively, with lovely energy to the flavors of raspberry, spices and fresh herbs. Not yet particularly complex but I love the vibrancy of this wine, not to mention the very long finish. Built to age and in need of a few years of patience."
93 Points

"Velvety, focused and lively, with rose petal–accented cherry and raspberry flavors. Finishes with a silky feel and real generosity. Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2013. 615 cases made."
91 Points

"The complement to the Camerata from Cadence, this estate-grown blend is 52% Cab Franc and 48% Merlot. There’s a juicy core that is delightful, with ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit. Both of the Cara Mia wines see 50% new oak for a full 18 months, and at this early age this shows as aliquorous, almost bourbony aftertaste. The aromatics display dark notes of smoke and coffee, along with some mocha and cracker. "
