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.

Critical Acclaim

"A blend of just over 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot (last year I mistakenly wrote that the balance was Cabernet Franc), the opaque ruby/purple-colored 2009 reveals notes of scorched earth/burning embers/charcoal, black currants, ripe cherries and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied and pure with sweet tannin, this is an under-the-radar, high quality claret to drink over the next 20-25 years."

"Pretty nose of blackberry and mineral that follows through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Juicy and rich. Very well done. —J.S.

"(a 60/40 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot from vines averaging 40 years of age) Inky purple. Perfectly ripe but rather understated black plum and blackcurrant are complicated by floral notes of rose, gardenia and violet as well as a hint of tartar sauce. Easygoing and smooth on entry, with flamboyant ripe black fruit and Oriental spice flavors that come as a surprise following the nose. Finishes clean and long, with considerable tannic bite and a pleasant lingering flinty mineral note. This will need time to resolve its youthfully aggressive-but not drying-tannins. Terrific potential.
