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: 13.2%

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

A difficult vintage, however, vineyard work in August made the must, September sunshine finished the masterpiece.

Varietal Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. The Ducru Beaucaillou 2007 has a rather elegant, understated nose, the type that could get lost in a blind tasting such as this: notes of wild strawberry, raspberry, cedar and a touch of leather, nice definition and finesse. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins, very poised and almost Burgundian in its purity towards the finish. Beautifully crafted for the vintage."
93 Points

"A very powered wine, pushing forward with solid, but always fresh structure and fruit. The wine bursts with ripe jammy fruits, but is also firmly tannic. It combines sweet weight with final extreme, exuberant freshness. "
93 Points

"Red-ruby. Nicely ripe aromas for the year: cassis, lead pencil, menthol, minerals and flowers. Then juicy, intense and sharply delineated, with lovely lift to the fla vors of dark berries, minerals and cedar. Silky-sweet wine with lovely aromatic persistence. And very intense for 2007."
91 Points

"Offers sliced plum on the nose, with flowers and some oak. Medium-bodied, with polished, refined tannins that caress the palate. Builds on the finish. Racy for the vintage. Best after 2014. 10,500 cases made"
