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: 14.5%

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

This is a huge wine. It is deep red violet with dark fruit aromas, firm structure, full-bodied, long finish. Excellent with rich spiced dishes, strong cheeses, roast or grilled meats, tuna, salmon and chocolate.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 E. Foster Reserva is 100% Malbec sourced from old vines of 50+ years and aged for 12 months in 30% new French and American oak before bottling without fining and filtration. It reveals an excellent bouquet of cedar, tobacco, spice box, lavender, and black cherry that jumps from the glass. Medium-bodied with an elegant personality, this is a sweetly-fruited, spicy, easygoing Malbec for enjoying over the next 6-8 years."
90 Points

"This big, unctuous wine fills the mouth with black fruit, sweet, cinnamon-like spice and a touch of leather. It develops complexity as it opens in the glass, taking on fresher dimensions while it maintains its candied depth."

Style: Earthy & Spicy
Pair with: Cheese
A group of us enjoyed this wine together, and it has some nice complexity and color, a little spice and kind of chewy flavor, mainly lacks a great finish. Would not necessarily buy it again, but a very drinkable and interesting wine.
