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

A vibrant color. Attractive fruit on the nose, showing a lively well-defined, if rather sooty character. Rather soft and straightforward in the beginning, with a little more bright fruit in the midpalate. Quite soft and juicy.

Critical Acclaim

"Smooth wine, the tannins firmly placed within the ripe fruit. It is not heavy, only lightly extracted, full of the ripest fruit.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points "
93 Points

"Blueberry and blackberry, with hints of sliced mushrooms. Full body, with velvety tannins and a soft textured finish. Best Potensac in years. Better in 2015. "
92 Points

"Dark purple-tinged ruby. Initially reticent nose opens with air to reveal cabernet franc-driven strawberry, violet, cocoa and mineral aromas. Then broad and chunky in the mouth, with red berry and black cherry flavors complicated by a welcome element of minerality. Became increasingly graceful with air, finishing long and vibrant, with very fine tannins. Deeper and more complex than usual for this wine, and a great success of the vintage. This wine avoids the excessive ripeness of many other '09s.
Barrel Sample: 89-91 Points "
91 Points

"Intense aromas of currant and blackberry, with hints of licorice, follow through to a full body, with a balance of tannins and a spearmint and mineral aftertaste.
Barrel Sample: 87-90 Points "
