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: 13.5%

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

Very attractive deep ruby red in color. Aromas of blackcurrant and raspberries explode on the nose. The attack is extremely round and smooth. The wine is full-bodied on the palate, showing ample fruit, abundant freshness and silky, yet noticeable tannins, all held within a firm structure. Delicate hints of oak intermingle with this harmonious ensemble. The lengthy and weighty finish evolves towards more spicy notes. The power and balance in this wine indicate the very good cellaring potential of the Chateau de Serame Minervois 2006.

Critical Acclaim

"This rich, well-sculpted red oozes kirsch and raspberry flavors, backed up by fresh acidity. There's plenty of grip on the crunchy fruit- and spice-filled finish. Drink now through 2013. 400 cases imported. "
