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.

Winemaker's Notes

Notes of black fruits, blackcurrants, blackberries and blueberries. With aeration, the wine becomes distinctly more complex, with notes of delicate spices, cinnamon, light tobacco and coffee, followed by fresher notes of mint, and violets. The palate is smooth and rich, with a meaty, fruity structure. You will discover the same aromas that were present on the nose, as well as a certain thirst-quenching acidity provided by the tannins. A superb wine that merits a further few months of keeping before becoming fully integrated and wonderfully harmonious.

48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc
