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

"This wine's concentrated tannins match the sweet fruit and ripe acidity. It shows structure and density, with its blackberry flavor already showing well.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"
93 Points

"Very polished tannins to this refined and beautiful red with minerals and blackberries. Some wet earth too. Full and very integrated now.
Barrel Sample: 92-93 Points"
93 Points

"Firm, slightly dusty-edged plum and cassis fruit here, with a good sappy feel on the finish. Underlying tarry edge. Solid, if a bit reticent today.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
92 Points

"Deep ruby. Aromas of red berries, minerals and herbs leap from the glass. On the palate, zippy acidity provides considerable lift to the red berry, plum and mineral flavors. Finishes juicy, graceful and long, with an attractive floral touch.
Barrel Sample: 89-91 Points"
